I finished my Master degree in Graphic Design in 2009, specialising in children's book illustrations. I am a freelance illustrator who can work with many different materials and in many different styles.
I am passionate about art and I always try my hardest to create something both my client and myself like. To view more of my work, you can find my site by typing my name Ine Spee into a search bar.
I am also available as a Dutch-English translator and have done a few translation jobs already. I am bilingual, born in Belgium and have lived there for 27 years, but I have moved to the United Kingdom in 2012 to live with my partner.
Area Covered: illustration, graphic design, translation
Work Experience Summary: I have mainly worked for a local organisation which works with foster families and foster children. They made a project to help the parents of foster children to deal with the loss of their child, a project for which I created the visuals. This included the logo, emotion cards (typography), illustrations to depict certain situations, a diary and two different boards with illustrations on them.
I have also created the logos for two local organisations that help parents with how to raise their children.
Three of my illustrations have been published in a national children's magazine.
As a freelancer I have also done a few commissions for people, all illustrations in different styles and for different purposes (gift, illustration for a website, business card...).
Education Summary: During my education I have always been drawing and painting. I followed an after school art class for 11 years.
I followed an Animation course for 2.5 years, where I learned how to make a storyboard, make 2D and 3D animation, work with stop-motion animation and how to make a digital cut-out animation.
Following that course, I did a 4 year Master degree in Graphic Design, where I specialised in Illustration. My expertise is children's book illustrations, though one of my other strong points is realistic drawings (used for encyclopaedia or museums for example).
