The Amsterdam-based illustrator Daphne van den Heuvel has the talent to delicately create beautiful drawings of fashion and personal memories. She illustrates garments in a chic and soft way, making her work stunning and unique. Heuvel likes to focus on fabrics and texture, which is why this series is all about stripes.

These images communicate to viewers the richness and geometrical nature of lines. She uses a neutral-colored background to paint with subtle lines female subjects wearing bright, striped garments. Combinations like black and white, white and blue, and pink and black give these art pieces life and energy. Also, the plain monochromatic background combined with the colored ensembles create a mesmerizing visual effect, as the lines appear more vivid and stand out.

Daphne van den Heuvel captures on paper the essence of fashion and art.
