Anne Passchier

I’m an illustrator from The Netherlands, currently living in the USA. In my work, I try to focus on inclusivity, positivity and LGBTQIA+ advocacy. I also enjoy surface design and love working on children’s products and gift packaging.

I have previously illustrated several children's books focusing on identity and the LGBTQIA+ community, including Rainbow: A First Book of Pride by Michael Genhart, Trans+: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being You by Karen Rayne, PhD, and Katherine Gonzales, MBA, What Are Your Words? by Katherine Locke, and Being You by Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli.

Outside of illustrating, I like hanging with my cats, videogames, Dungeons & Dragons, shows about aliens, cooking and baking, and anything spooky or Halloween-related.

I am non-binary and use they/them pronouns. Non-binary means I don’t identify as strictly male or female. When referring to me in conversation, you can say “they’re an illustrator”, and use gender neutral words like person, partner, or sibling rather than man/woman, boyfriend/girlfriend, or brother/sister.
