It’s so nice to meet you!
My name is Miriam Bos.
I am an 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.
Books | Cards | Fabrics and more
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 am now 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 I can’t stop drawing.
Have a look at my instagram account if you are curious to see my work in progress.
Other Fun Facts
- I am part of Forest Foundry, an art collective of 8 very talented illustrators & designers from over the world.
- 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 one cat called Chip the Cat. He’s a beautiful Russian Blue.
Our sweet second cat, Pixel the White, sadly passed away in 2018. (Yes, my husband and I thought it was funny to give them both surnames).
- You can follow both our cats in their ‘Alnostsquarecat’ instagram account
- You can wake me up in the middle of the night for tea and chocolate. Just the chocolate without creamy fillings. Don’t pollute the chocolate please.🍫
