Roozeboos, or Anne Roos Kleiss as you might know her in daily life, tries to look at the world with a childlike curiosity. Something that is reflected in her artist name, which was her nickname as a kid. Her work is playful, energetic and filled with tons of little details to get lost in. When Roozeboos is not sitting behind her desk you can find her on a corner of the street with her sketchbook, capturing the world around her. She mostly uses traditional materials like paint and crayons, but she also enjoys working with risograph or screen printing. Making art around the themes of inclusivity, food, community, nature and small tokens of happiness is her biggest passion.
In 2017 she graduated from a Bachelor in Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and in February 2020 she finished an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art.
She has worked with companies such as Blossom Books,
Child’s Play UK, Villa Zebra, Pearle, Uitgeverij Loopvis and Oerol.
