CAPTURING SOULS ON PAPER
After the school of Arts in Utrecht – the Netherlands, Mapye started drawing speed portraits/caricatures at events in the Netherlands for a few years. In these years her portraits reached the dutch TV and some Dutch celebrities own a real Mapye portrait.
Then she started drawing the faces from people all over the world as
Since she was young she always loved to draw people to catch the soul
of a person on paper. Her caricatures are not offensive, rather cute.
She thinks it is more important to draw portraits that are similar to the
persons she draws than that they are stretched completely out
of proportion. Because there is beauty in all of us and she loves to
point that out.
Next to drawing people Mapye makes heaps of other art as well. For more info about her other work check out www.Mapije.com
