Yvonne Heeres, artist and photographer

Behind the camera and drawings

Who am I?

My name is Yvonne Heeres and I am a photographer and artist based in the north of The Netherlands. In 2015 I graduated as a Graphic designer and I am a graphic designer for living (designing websites). I keep learning to improve my designs, drawings and photographs. 

When did I start?

I did start drawing when I was little. Digitaly I started years ago (in my teenage years), I was using the program Paint to draw dolls. I was always intrested in creative things like drawing, painting and DIY. Later I bought a drawing tablet and started to use photoshop. I started to draw metal artists and actors I like. Because my interest in creativity I did a graphic design education, in this time I learned (mostly by myself, tuturials and courses I did during and after my education) to work with Illustrator and photoshop. I am always busy to improve my drawings. 

I started to take pictures when I was much younger. In that time I took pictures from nature, my family and animals. When I went to my first concert I took pictures and I loved to do that. Now my Interest is mainly with taking pictures of metal concerts and festivals. 

When I was 11 I started to listen to Evanescence. Later I started to listen more and more to this kind of music. When I was 15 I listen to the Finnish band HIM and felt in love with the guitars, I started to play guitar myself and looked up to Linde. Because of exams I stopped playing and I did not know what I was doing anyway. In 2017 I saw Sabaton and Twilight Force and see Chris Rorland playing made me pick up my guitar again. I started to take guitarlessons. In the time I was 11 till now, this kind of music came more and more important to me. Because of my love for metal music, I take pictures of metalbands and make drawings of metal artists.
