Hi!

My name is Julia Henze. I'm a freelance illustrator, letterer and urban sketcher living and working in a village with a name that nobody can pronounce, Bergschenhoek, in The Netherlands. I primary work in retail illustration, mainly the hand drawn lettering, and beside it, I have a great hobby which is urban sketching.  

I'd love to share my passion for urban sketching with you and I want to show you how to make a sketching process easier and fun.
