A lover of color, composition, and texture, Kloosterhof truly enjoys crafting things with her hands as she gives life to the most beautiful and detailed collages, illustrations, photoshoot sets, and large-scale paper installations. “She likes drawing parallels in languages, loves symbolism, color theory, puns, and idioms…and often tries to sneak these into her project”, POCKO, the creative content and talent agency that represents the artist, describes Kloosterhof’s unique style and way of creating.
