Mies van Hout

Mies van Hout (b. 1962) is an illustrator who, in a short period of time and without too much ado, has filled children’s bookshelves with her colourful illustrations, including for stories by Mathilde Stein and Hanna Kraan.



Vrolijk is Mies van Hout’s first picture book without outside involvement from another writer. Inspired by a children’s workshop where she experimented with oil pastels, she developed a new technique, which she then went on to use in her own picture book.
