Kaatje Vermeire (BE)

Kaatje Vermeire is an illustrator who sees her work as a vulnerable process, preferring to get her hands dirty in the process. On the printing press, she breathes life into her stories, with exciting images full of meaning. Loose elements are cut from offset plates, plexiglas or cardboard, and printed layer after layer on painted backgrounds. This is how she builds up nature scenes and fictional settings, with vivid characters narrating big and intense emotions.
