Portfolio of the day
Who are you?
My name is Nadya Bonten-Slenders. I’m an illustrator from the Netherlands. I love to create whimsical paintings and illustrations for all ages to enjoy. Adventures, wanderlust and motherhood are main themes within my art, often including cute critters as the main characters.
What is your next creative project?
Right now, I’m working on the artwork for my first solo picture book, which is very exciting! The story in the book is told purely by my paintings, large and detailed spreads without the use of any words. So the viewer has to rely on my art and his/her imagination to follow the story.
What do you like about Portfoliobox?
I am very enthusiastic about Portfoliobox and my website. Before I got to know Portfoliobox, I used to create my website from scratch, which became very time consuming once I started to work on more and more art commissions and projects. For me as an artist it is very important to keep my website up to date, but I don’t want it to take up too much of my time.
I think Portfoliobox is very intuitive to the artist’s needs and wishes; you can choose between beautiful galleries to display art in the best possible way, and add functional pages for potential clients to find what they need to know. All of this in an acceptable amount of time and without mastering difficult technical know-how.
