Maaike Canne is an illustrator based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Her colorful illustrations are influenced by architecture, design, Japan, and history. Her work has this thoughtful surreal quality to them, almost like there's a bigger riddle at play and each work is another clue.

She's working with a range of clients in both editorial and commercial business. In addition, she also paints murals and paintings, both for commercial projects and as her artistic practice. Her murals have this whimsical larger than life vibe that makes you feel like a small little kid tasting ice cream for the very first time.
