My name is Heleen van Buul and I’m a surface pattern designer living in The Hague in the Netherlands. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the Hague in 2009, I started working as an independent designer.


My biggest source of inspiration is nature. Even in the middle of winter, there is always something to see and marvel at. A short walk outside is always a good start for a new design. My designs often show stylized animals and botanical subjects with many geometric shapes. I love studying all the little details that can be found in nature and creating patterns with them. I also enjoy designing for kids and making fun and bright patterns for them.

Would you like to know about licensing or do you have a commission in mind?
