Mijn Schatje

Mijn Schatje digitally paints beautiful, porcelain-skinned little girls. Usually just the disembodied heads (but we find the occasional body or neck).


These little innocents always possess an otherwordly glow.

Their eyes are sad and deep…

Years ago there was a fascinating controversy surrounding her work because she was accused of using photographs of dolls as the basis of her vector art. I can see how some people who make a living through art would get incensed (if she didn’t ask permission from the doll creator), but I feel she was unfairly blasted. She may have used doll photographs as a starting point, but her work clearly shows her own imagination and ingenuity. Art isn’t simply the creation of something out of nothing, but the ability to transform.
