My name is Pedro Johannes du Buf ( PDB) , I am Dutch and I live in Amsterdam . 

I have a Passion for art and handcrafts I just love to make my brain bussy . I love to Paint and Draw , and in these way I have educated myself to learn as much as I can to create my art . 

 I was born in Colombia – Bogota and maybe because of these roots my style is a a bit south american’s . I lived in the Netherlands , Zwitserland and Portugal .

  I lived most of my life in Portugal where I studied to become an animator and took a Internship in Amsterdam in a Animation Studio . I felt in love with the city and the culture so moved here .

In 2020 , I started to focus only on Illustration and Painting and  was really lucky ( or not maybe just faith or attraction) I got in touch with the right person that asked me to make illustrations for his Children’s book stories , and so I became a Children’s book illustrator . 

This year 2022 I want to take my painting further and to make some real acrylic and oil paintings  , for now I only worked Digitally and Drew on paper , And I will share my progress on this website . 

So come along with me on this art trip, I will keep you updated on my progress and new techniques . 

Thank you for being here
