gemma koomen

Hello, my name is Gemma Koomen and I make paintings and illustrations in gouache and ink about the little things that I love; real and imaginary wildflowers and plants, small people in big places, animals that you could maybe have a conversation with, thoughtful objects and tiny homes.

With my illustrated world I aim to open up a little door of tenderness and peacefulness, which in turn helps me (and hopefully others) to notice and enjoy the beauty of small things. My work is a constant opportunity to embrace imperfection and seek simplicity.
