About me

Hi! I am Tamar Sleven, a freelance illustrator from the Netherlands. Here is a little bit about myself. 

studied photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. After graduating I started on a diverse creative career path, working as a photographer, graphic designer, editor, writer and digital producer in the Netherlands and abroad. 

In 2019, I decided to set up my own company, Studio Nooitgedacht ('Studio Never Thought'), an agency in online communication, copywriting and design. In addition, I'm also active as a freelance illustrator under my own name (Tamar Sleven).

My illustration work is characterized by offbeat humour, a maximalist approach to colour and a deep appreciation of all things weird and wonderful. I love telling stories through my art and I love it when my work makes people laugh or scratch their head in puzzlement - both is even better.


I am open for business. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, if you'd like to discuss a commission, or just to say hi.

I would love to hear from you.
