illustrator and animation filmmaker

Cheyenne Goudswaard (1996) is a Dutch illustrator and animation filmmaker.


Her focus is drawn to the dirt in the corner and the neighbour that no one wants – the unnoticed and misunderstood.

Cheyenne wants to peek beyond the front door to discover what is hidden in the backyard. Her fascination with human behaviour, how we shape our lives and how we relate to the world is expressed into soft, intimate and relatable illustrations and animations.

She graduated with a Master degree in Animation from MIVC St. Joost School of Art and Design in 2023 and has been selected for the Playgrounds Next Talent Program.
