Roozeboos, or Anne Roos Kleiss as you might know her in daily life, tries to look at the world with a childlike curiosity. Something that is reflected in her artist name, which was her nickname as a kid. Her work is playful, filled with color and tells stories even through its smallest details. She loves to capture the world around her in her sketchbook and this brings her inspiration from unexpected places. 


In 2017 she graduated from a Bachelor in Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and in February 2020 she finished an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art.
