I started this website, Clipartqueen.com, some years
ago, because I wanted an outlet for all my ideas and drawings.
The site started out with only a few pages, but since then it has
grown to more than 250 pages with drawings, clip art, facts about
animals, cards and a lot more, and with more than 10000 clip art and
I am so happy about all my visitors and I am grateful
for your interest in my clip art.
I am also grateful when I
receive mails where you tell me about how you have used the clip art
you were looking for.
The way people use my drawings and photos
often surprises me, it is amazing how many ways they can come into
f you want to see more examples of my work you can visit

I am a member of the

To my surprise my website is now among
the top 0,5% of all active websites, very much thanks to Solo Build
It!, the company that gives me constant help with everything I don't
know about making a website (which is quite a lot :-))

Well, back to "who is Clipartqueen":
I have painted and drawn all my life, and when I was 40 years old I
started illustrating children's books.
Today I am 67
years old, and I am still working as an illustrator, and I
am also working on a few ideas for my own children's books, both
text and illustration.
Actually finished my first picture
book in English in March 2017,
you can read more about it here
Besides working with drawing and painting
I am the mother of 3 children of my own and one more, my husbands
daughter from an earlier marriage.
I am also a grandmother to
girls and 1 boy.
Drawing and painting is what makes me happy, besides being with my
family, so I still need an outlet for my work.
Here you can see a drawing I made as a fast sketch of
a friends baby, not mine, I am sorry to say.
It seems that when my own kids and
my grandchildren were small, I was so occupied taking care
of them and enjoying them that I simply forgot to make
Maybe you can see from this and all the
drawings on Clipartqueen.com that I like to make all kinds
of different drawings. And crafts. And photos.
have always been very interested in animals, which is one of
the reasons why I have made the pages with animal facts.
The other reason for making pages with facts about animals
is, as I write somewhere, that I think it
is a great idea to make this website a place where you can
find facts about the animals together with photos and
clipart of the animal.
I hope that you enjoy my website and find clipart and information
you can use, and I hope you with this website has found a site where
you know you can find almost anything you need when it comes to
I will go on making new pages with great
stuff, and you can always follow what happens if you sign up for RSS
in the right column, where you can also ask for
the news to be sent to you as email.
In the future
you will find a lot of children books, picture books.
I have published, on Kindle, the first book in the MONS-series,
about a little funny kitten, and I am working on
the next books in this series.
you can find right now is Clipartqueen's blog, where there regularly
will come new posts with pictures, ideas for crafts and
stuff like that.
