“I really like to create small intimate moments. Relatable situations.”, Ilse tells us. Next to her beautiful designs and impressive productivity, Ilse also worked on a sound online fanbase with more than 200k followers.

At the moment Ilse is working on an indie game Beacon Pines, with Hiding Spot Games. The kickstarter campaign for this game just ended.
