The captain of your life

I am an artist, designer, storyteller and artistic coach, with a passion for energy work and Peruvian shamanism. I share big themes in small stories and let  art serve as a healing- and connection tool for the soul.

I make illustrations and write about (re)gaining captainship of your own life, as I strongly believe that the world is in need of "creative hsp / empaths" to shine their lights and confidently guide less sensitive peeps to a world that contains more compassion, nature, and love.

I offer inspirational artwork, blogs, essays and creative e-courses in mixed media illustrations,  autonomy and energy- and soul restoration.

 Are you ready for a shift?


Angelique guides you in a careful and dedicated manner to your core, your themes and supports you where necessary in shaping.

My illustrations are my lifesavers. They help me to make sense of this ludicrous world.


How to slay your dragons, manage your energy and feel better as a creative hsp empath

Your illustration reminds me to love myself


Let’s fly and make magic

As a creative hsp empath I often considered myself oversensitive, peculiar, difficult and not welcome in this world. The ratrace of power struggles, unfairness and inconsiderate people seemed too much to handle and I could not and would not change into someone who would fit in. 

Nowadays I see that these kind of creative empaths precisely, are essential for the neccessary change in this brutal world. Where the previous ‘new age’ movement was a too far spaced out to reach the masses with their love and peace message, this current collection of creative and sensitive empaths, have the pioneering spirit to build a bridge to a lighter and brighter future.

Does this sound idealistic? Exellent! Ideals contain hope and light energy and that is exactly what the world needs right now. Wanna come and make magic with me?
