Petra van der Lem
My name is Petra van der Lem. From my home studio in the western part of the Netherlands I work as a freelance graphic, surface & pattern designer. I’m trained as an Interior Designer and hold a BA in Art History with a minor in Printmaking & Graphic Techniques.
My style is colorful and graphic but also dreamy and intuitive. I like to be guided by what is happening on the paper or canvas. Colors are used to create an atmosphere or to make a statement. I believe a color says a lot about the character of a person, the appearance of a company, or the vibe of an interior.
