Hi, I’m Fennabee! I was born as Fenna Bouve (Fenna B., you see) in the late seventies in Ostend, a small port town -yet with cosmopolitan allures- in Belgium, by the North Sea. I moved at young age to grow up in Brussels – the beautiful chaotic capital of that same tiny Belgium.
Since 2000 I live in Antwerp, a charming provincial (river) port town with some 660.000 inhabitants, with my superman and our two hilarious boys.
We don’t own a car, and we proudly manage to do everything by bike, in this car-dominated city. I have a real need to be outdoors and offline sometimes. For that, I took up running in February 2014, and I proudly call myself a (little bit fanatic, I must admit) runner again since.
I love drawing, it really relaxes me. Taking up thick paper, a pen, chinese ink & brushes, colour with the most vivid colours I can find. Aquarel, gouache and posca-markers are my favorites.
I always start with traditional media, and sometimes do retouching and composing in Photoshop. Mostly I do my own graphic design, I integrate my illustrations in flyers, logo’s… I used to be a graphic designer but I love illustrating more.
And to add even more fun & joy to my art making, I discovered and started to love the very free art form of Mail Art.
I hope I can give you some of my color energy on my website! Enjoy!
