I am an illustrator specializing in food, travel, hand-lettering, & surface design. My illustrations are an extension of my perpetual curiosity and wanderlust. My work has been used for print ads, editorials, books, stationery products, & textiles.

I grew up in Southern California and received a BFA in Illustration from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I currently live in beautiful Seattle, WA, with my husband and two cats. I work as a freelance illustrator and designer and teach at Cornish College of the Arts.

Eat Vegan in Detroit, Michigan by Esther Loopstra

Seattle, WA, US


There are so many great creative things happening in Detroit right now! The food scene is incredible and I had the pleasure of visiting a couple of these places this summer while I was there. Soul food, donuts, sandwiches and pizza...Detroit has it all for the vegan traveler!
