Hi there, my name is Miriam Bos. I am an illustrator and pattern designer from the Netherlands who loves creating art that brings a smile to your face. My last name ‘Bos’, is Dutch for ‘Forest’. I am a big lover of nature. We live in Apeldoorn, a city that is surrounded by forest and heide. On sunny days I love making long bicycle trips with my husband while exploring the area.
I started out as an illustrator of children’s books & magazines. In 2012, I jumped into pattern design and put my heart into developing new illustrations and surface designs for a whole different market. I am now a fabric designer with Birch Fabrics and have two fabric collections on my name. I specialize in both traditional and digital techniques and like to mix them together, which gives my artwork a distinct & quirky style.
Clients include Cottage Door Press, Campbell Books, Design House Greetings, Flow magazine, Auzou, Transavia Airlines, Crocodile Creek, American Greetings, Birch Fabrics, and many more.
