Nina Valkhoff is an illustrator and muralist from Rotterdam,

The Netherlands. She has been working as a professional muralist for over 15 years with works in The Netherlands, Argentina, Portugal, Mexico and Ireland. 


Nina studied illustration at the Willem de Kooning Art Academy in Rotterdam. Her work can be seen worldwide on streets, apartment buildings, restaurants, offices, and shops.


Making big mural paintings is her passion. She loves to cover her walls with plants and animals, especially with endangered species in order to make people aware of their existence, to show the beauty of these animals and to point out our selective love for the cute or more common animals.

Besides making murals, she likes painting animals on vintage leather bags. In this way she re-purposes them by giving them a new soul and turning them into an unique piece of art.
