It’s so nice to meet you!

My name is Miriam Bos.
I am a multidisciplinary illustrator and pattern designer from the Netherlands who loves creating art that brings a smile to your face.

My artwork is available for licensing and I’m always looking forward to a new fun and challenging project.

I started out as an illustrator of children’s books & magazines. In 2012, I jumped into pattern design and put my heart into developing new illustrations and surface designs for a whole different market. I’ve been a fabric designer with Birch Fabrics and have two fabric collections on my name.
I’m also an illustrator of children’s books and have licensed my work to several companies & industries worldwide.

I specialize in both traditional and digital techniques and like to mix them up which gives my artwork a distinct & quirky style.
Whimsical girls, lush flowers, and sweet birds are just a few of the things that I can’t stop drawing.

Have a look at my instagram account if you are curious to see my work in progress.

Fun Facts

  • My last name ‘BOS’ is the Dutch word for ‘Forest’.
    That’s quite fortunate since I love nature and especially long walks in the forest.
  • We have a cat called Chip the Cat. He’s a beautiful Russian Blue. We also had a white cat called Pixel but he sadly passed away in the summer of 2018.
  • You can follow our Chip the Cat in his very own Almostsquarecat instagram account.
  • You can wake me up in the middle of the night for tea and chocolate. But only if it the chocolate doesn’t contain weird creamy fillings. But toppled with nuts and raisins is fine.
  • I have a love for fun packaging designs. I’d love to design my own series of chocolate wrappings or tea tins sometime!
  • Oh, and now we mention them: I collect (tea) tins, both vintage and new.
  • My husband loves to make art too and has a website: www.coendemoor.com
