About me

Hi there! I'm Roozeboos, or Anne Roos Kleiss as you might know me in daily life. I'm a Dutch illustrator based in Rotterdam with a love for coffee, wrapping presents and singing in the shower! When I'm not working in my studio you can find me on a corner of the street with my sketchbook, capturing the world around me. Besides these observational drawings I find a lot of inspiration in my own childhood memories. Which is reflected in the name I use to sign my drawings, 'Roozeboos’ (pronounced: rose-a-boh-s), the way my family called me family when I was still a little creature. 

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

I have worked with companies such as Loopvis, Villa Zebra, Pearle, Duizel in het Park, Vrije Scholen Gemeenschap and Oerol.
