My name is Ronja Ida Weia Driessen and I am a 20 year old Illustrator based in Utrecht. I am a second year Illustration student at the University of he Arts Utrecht (HKU). In the beginning of 2015 I did an internship at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. At that time I started drawing for fun, instead of drawing when I had to for my high school classes. In order to really be free I did this blindfolded. I did this really just to get started but I think it's a great way to empty your head and to create without judgement. I decided to follow the O-course at Gerrit Rietveld Academy that started at the beginning of the academic year of 2015-2016. Almost a year after I started drawing I sold my first Drawing. At that time I still lived in Belgium and decided to move to Rotterdam. At this time I already knew I wanted to study Illustration and I applied to the HKU at the beginning of 2017. Right now I'm in the middle of my study and I do freelance Illustration work besides my study. Besides my drawing history I also have experience in theatre and mime. In 2011 I started following lessons at 'Het Laagland Theater' in Sittard. Since then I played en helped created a lot of different plays. I have also followed theatre and dance masterclasses at Buitenkunst.
