'Goede illustratie is net zo interessant als een schilderij.Saskia de Bodt, bijzonder hoogleraar illustratie Universiteit van Amsterdam in de Volkskrant
presents her work June 5, 2010 in the Toneelschuur
Miss Blackbirdy - Merel Boers - graduated cum laude from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2006. During the course of her study, she developed a love for fashion and illustration. She is inspired by the world around her and always tries to create a whole new world in an illustrative and fashionable way.
Miss Blackbirdy's illustrations and designs have a fragile and girlish feeling with a touch of naivety. Her world is idyllic and magnificent, a world where black and white flowers, animals and imaginative figures exist. Merel Boers won the prestigious BLVD-Fashion Award 2006, the Lancôme Colour Design Award in 2007 and the Fiep Westendorp Stimulation Prize in 2009.
