Margit van der Zwan, artist

Hello! I’m an artist specialising in portraiture and children’s book illustration. I studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art (London, UK) & Arte Sotto un (Florence, Italy) and now work with art directors, editors and creatives, as well as conjuring up solo projects. My studio is in the North West of England, where I live in a house filled with paintbrushes and musical instruments.
