Lois van Baarle

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that the human body absolutely has limits as to what it’s capable of.”

“Drawing is a lot about translating thoughts and ideas into a physical form, but we often forget that the body is the tool that we use to achieve this.”

“I developed a repetitive strain injury in 2014 that I’m still struggling with to this day. Because of it, I have to limit my work hours and make different priorities for how I spend my free time. But the truth is, it was that way before the injury too. Because I neglected this fact, I had to go through a crisis to realize it. To all artists out there: take good care of your body, try to manage your stress as best you can, and never push yourself too far!”
