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 one cat called Chip the Cat. He’s a beautiful Russian Blue. We also used to have 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. Just the chocolate without weird creamy fillings, please. Don’t pollute the chocolate!?
  • I collect (tea) tins, both vintage and new.
  • My husband loves to make art too and has a website: www.coendemoor.com
