My name is Anke Knapper and I'm a freelance illustrator.  I like food, mysteries, science, history, books, nature, traveling, taboos and every other subject you would like an illustration for. I was born in Assen, a small town in the Netherlands, on the 24th of June 1990. Now I live and work in The Hague near the sea.
