Nice to see you would like to know the artist behind these graphics. My name is Jocelijne AKA JoJo and i’m 30 years old. Since little child I already started to make lovely drawings pictures and loved to be creative. As well recycle trash into some artwork, or working with paint or crayons. As soon as I grew up I knew that I wanted to do something with this creativity as this is not something I can put down. I always try to express my feelings into illustration at time. Some might be happy some not. You know how the days flows!
Beside my Illustrations I’m also a mom of 2 lovely princesses of 7 and 12 years young. I love every bit and piece of being a mom. even the tantrums! I have a lovely partner who supports me in everything I do. Corrects me where correction is needed and helps me finding my way into the world wide web. Thank you so much for being my friend and life partner! I just totally LOVE sheep’s! I try to collect them in any way. Ornaments, illustrations, cuddles, keyrings just everything you can imagine.
My love for sheep’s was always there but since we moved to Scotland I just got insane! After 3 years of a great adventure in Scotland we moved back to Holland again, where I am now. I love going out with my family explore around and plan visits to the zoo or parks and all the things that bring a smile on my families face. I am also fascinated by hot-air balloons. I have lost my heart at those vintage balloons! If there is more you want to know, let me know! *Ü*
About this site
Vanilla Patch is started in the beginning of august 2010. This is not my first site I owned. I changed names a couple of times as I was not satisfied what the domain name was reflecting. My first pixel site was called Jolisa and has started in 2005. Since then I can call myself an active pixelartist. I created lovely images and learned allot during this time. Jolisa was created with the names of our family members. J for my name OL for Olaf (my partner) name and Isa for my oldest daughters name (Isa). I came to the conclusion that it was not fair towards a maybe second child so I changed my site name. I love little tiny pixels so why not call the site My little Pixels! And so I did. My second domain was called mylittlepixels and continued with the site for another 2 years. Again I came to the conclusion that I did not only drew little pixels. also larger ones and again it was not reflecting what I was creating. I have changed the domain name to Vanilla Patch in august 2010 with the reason that It did not had to reflect on the pixels itself. So I am happy with it!
My pixel Favorites
I just love anything and everything with sheep. I am a sheep collector and seldom I can not refuse myself to buy any if I see it around. I love both bright and pastel colors depending on the time of the year and my mood. I love graphics where you can see that allot of love has been put in and not been rushed off or recreated from existing images or characters.
I don”t have allot of sister sites. Just because I think that being a sister site shows you a special connection with the site owner. I have only 2 sister sites and I love those girls!
Ooh Jenny ohh Jenny we have been trough allot of things. Jennifer is my sistersite because we have a few things in common. We both have hairy toes and love sheeps. We all know Jennifer and her lovely creations so what should I say about that? You know! Every time Jennifer is coming online my heart is making a wee jump. I love talking with her about anything and everything and love to do some difficult ladybird puzzles. Jeniffer thnx for being so sweet!
|Mandy from Dutch Dots is my lovely sistersite because we share allot of emotions together. Mandy is a lovely pixelartist and I love talking with her every time when she is online. Just like me Mandy is coming from Holland. I have never met Mandy in real but I will once very soon to hug her family. I can not say more than that I love every bit and piece we share. Mandy thnx for being my sister.|
