Hello there! Nice to see you have found your way to my portfolio! I am Madli - nature lover, dedicated yogi and most of all passionate Illustrator from Estonia.
Over the last years I've lived and worked as a freelance Illustrator in the Netherlands, collaborating with creative studios and individuals to compose commercial and editorial illustrations, concept art, animation assets, book covers, picture books, pencil portraits and much more.
I believe the journey of an illustrator is a life-long learning curve, therefore I constantly challenge myself with new styles and projects to keep on growing my skills.
I'm always up for new challenging projects, so don't hesitate to get in touch and let's find out what I could do for you!
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
A cover illustration can be the most important tool to help your book or album pop out. Cover Illustrations can be both highly detailed or more conceptual, which ever serves your needs the best!
Editorial Illustration can help to bring your stories to life and encourage readers to engage with content. These illustrations are often less detailed so they could quickly explain the idea.
Fashion Illustrations can help to transmit mood and style of your brand and add a special personal touch to the apparels and other products.
As the sky is the limit in illustration world, I’m always happy to collaborate with you to create custom illustrations that fill your needs and are sure to stand out.
Advertising Illustrations are great tools to support your companies promotional campaigns. As marketing materials featuring appealing illustration are more likely to draw attention, it is a great way to make your company pop out!
The best way to bring your idea and story to life is through illustrations that speak with even the smallest readers. Right illustration style can grab the attention of the right audience and enhance greatly your books visibility.
A strong foundation to achieve an impressive 2D animation are the illustrations. I can help your studio deliver impressive animations, by creating 2D illustrations and assets, that you can then bring to life.
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Madli or her work. Her ability to hone in on the smallest details and capture the energy of the work is impeccable.

“Working with Madli is such a delight! She is very creative, very result driven, and extremely hard working.
The end result is the best you can get and then some. And as a person, such a wonderful person!”

“I started following Madli on Instagram because of her outstanding pencil drawings. I couldn’t tell if those were actually black and white pictures or drawings! As it seemed nice to have “something” different on my wall I contacted Madli. I asked her if she could paint these battle-over-food White-tailed Eagles from a picture I took in Poland. She told me this would be quite a challenge, but as you can see the outcome is truly amazing. Besides being a great artist, I appreciate Madli as a very nice person. Contacts with here were very smoothly, both by e-mail and face to face. Also she has been helpful by giving some advice regarding the framing. If you’re really looking for quality, then don’t look any further!”

“I am fascinated by everything Madli paints, that is why I have ordered already two different designs from her (a digital painting and a tattoo design) and I am super happy with both of them! She is truly forthcoming and considered all my wishes, so when I got the first versions of the designs I barely wanted any changes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is in search for a good artist!!! ”

JACK FRASER / Digital Illustration
“I found Madli on Instagram and loved her work immediately. She is very approachable and professional, and communication with her is great. She has a knack for understanding exactly what you're after and delivers it perfectly. She asks the right questions and makes great suggestions if you're not quite sure what you want. And she isn't afraid to exercise her initiative when you give her free reign, to amazing effect. I know I'll need further work in the future and I'll be going straight back to her - no need to look around, you won't find better work”

"The painting Madli made for me is simply amazing! She made sure it was perfect for me and responded well to my adjustments. Furthermore she really helped me get the real essence out of my idea and where the true focus really is. The painting was a gift for my sister and I know by heart that this will be the best gift she has ever had.."
KEVIN ARMAND / Digital Illustration
“Working with Madli had been an amazing experience.. she has been able to take my verbal description of this mental picture I had and convert it into an illustration which showed exactly what I had in mind. In addition, she responds very swiftly and is very kind in general to deal with. Five out of five stars!”
