Who is your BloknoteAcademy teacher?

Your teacher at BloknoteAcademy is Marieke Blokland also known as Bloknote www.bloknote.nl

I am an artist, designer and illustrator  from Breda, the Netherlands.
In 2003 I graduated at the Academy of Arts St. Joost in Breda at the graphic design department and got my bachelor degree in design (Bdes).

Although my education was mainly focussed on visual communication, I discovered many new possibilities and freedom in fine art, especially painting, print making and drawing. Mixed Media and Art Journaling are a passion, allthough I also love paper crafts.

Since february 2014 I run my own business in art, design, illustration, creative (online) workshops and youtube tutorial video’s.

Making art for a good cause

In 2017 I will donate 5% of the net profit of BloknoteAcademy to Amnesty International.
