“The pattern created for this special edition is inspired by natural elements and feminine beauty, the different shades of pink color stands for diversity that is not tied to a particular gender.”
Romy Palstra

Romy, a 26-year-old artist, was born in Groningen, Netherlands. She dedicated nine years to studying art, starting with four years of Art & Design at the local art academy. Later, she pursued a Bachelor's degree in Design, specializing in Illustration & Animation at the Art Academy Minerva, also in Groningen.

At the age of 19, she officially registered her company, initially combining her lifestyle blog with illustration design assignments. However, since 2019, when she was 23, her primary focus shifted to pattern designing and illustrating. Since 2021, this has become her full-time and happy job.
