Jeannie CameronAmsterdam, NL
I graduated from Art Academy in illustration, typography, and stop-motion animation. After graduation I worked as a freelance illustrator for women's and children's magazines. Then I started combining illustration with graphic design so I could decide myself how my illustrations were used, even branching out into art-direction of several magazines, including a children's food magazine. I work from my home-studio as a freelancer, which was fantastic while bringing up two boys - and surround myself with all kinds of collections, like my memory collection, which are all a great inspiration to me. Nowadays I love combining illustration, design, collage and (hand)lettering in my work, and love to collaborate with anyone wanting beautiful, fun designs. I love designing websites, brochures, postcards, food- and other illustrations and handlettering.
I also work with my sister Beryl as Twocookies, on a food and cooking theme, called Twocookiesdesign. In 2015 we started challenging each other to complement the other's design, so we each created half of the picture. We call this Twocookiesbacktoback and for this we use other themes as well, like fashion, gardening, health, crafts, travel and of course food.

This place is special to me because I live in Amsterdam Eastside, which is the most amazing colourful neighbourhood. With colourful I mean there are people of so many cultures living here, it's wonderful. And the last couple of years many students have come to live here too, which means it's the most lively area you can possibly imagine!! You can get food and foodstuffs from all over the world and cafes and restaurants everywhere....see for yourself....
The east side of Amsterdam's harbour, behind the Central Station, has become THE place to be, with cafe's, restaurants & clubs suddenly appearing all over the place. Many tourists will not know all these places. Included in the map are all the addresses! Although most places are to be found on the internet - now you can jump in a taxi with the address and go have fun!!
