Loes Botman

Loes Botman uses PanPastel in combination with soft pastel sticks for her pastel paintings.

“The moment I discovered PanPastel in a store I was excited! Over time I found that I could really integrate PanPastel for my pastel paintings, PanPastel gives me so many opportunities.”


About Loes Botman

As a child I wished to become an artist. Drawing is necessary for me to feel alive.

My work has been shown in more than 225 exhibitions in The Netherlands and abroad. I give workshops and lectures, and make demos and videos.

For over 16 years I’ve been writing articles for Dutch, German and French magazines. Based on my artwork than 250 postcards, several board books, books for children, illustrated poetry books and two artbooks have been published.

I feel obliged to work as an artist and hope to spread and share my work all over the world. It’s my purpose each day to try, to make the world a little more beautiful.
