i'm Nina, the human behind this site and its contents. i am an artist/illustrator from the Netherlands and Tanzania, and currently based in Delft. i enjoy all things creative but illustration is my favourite way to communicate my ideas and feelings.


my work is strongly influenced by people, nature, and vintage items. through my illustrations i aim to communicate about being kind to the the environment and others, and enjoying small things in life. i want to create a calm and warm feeling through what i make, which i do by using earthy, natural colours and lots of texture.


other things i love: sustainable living • earl grey tea • sunny days • thrift stores • breakfast • stationery • brownies • animals (especially dogs and giraffes) • reading • fairy lights • mountains •


please send me a message if you would like to make something together/have any requests! or of course if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi. you can use the contact form here below or send something straight to hello@bananinastudio.com.


thanks for dropping by!

💛 Nina

i'd love to hear from you!
