About Paulien De Saeger

Paulien is a 20-year-old artist from Belgium. While studying geology at university, she's launching her art career. 

Ever since I was little, I loved art. I could spend hours just tracing illustrations from my books  

After 7 years of making commissioned pet portraits, I am now working on my first wildlife series. Animals are and will always be a big part of my life. That's why I've worked together with shelters and charities, donating 15% for each commission made. I find it important to raise awareness about the current environmental problems. By showing the beauty of all animals, I hope to make people fall in love with them. And help to stop the endangerment of all species.
With my wildlife collection as well, I will donate 10% to charities related to the subject.  

The question what to draw, was always very easy for me. I love animals more than anything, so it was an obvious choice they would become my subject. The hardest part is choosing which species to draw first, I would want to draw them all.

 I draw every portrait as it is my own animal I have to portray in the best way possible 

How it all started

Ever since I can remember, I was interested in art. My mother and grandfather are both good at drawing. That triggered me as a child to draw as well. I remember copying images from my books and giving them to my sisters and cousins. 
6 years ago, after seeing a drawing of a horse online, I started taking my art more seriously and started drawing every day.

I don't give up when I get my mind on something. It was and is no different with art. 

6 years ago I bought my first set of pastel pencils. I debated buying them for a very long time. It was a big purchase for my 14-year-old self. But looking back, it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. 

I started sharing my work on Facebook and so came my first commission. And my second, and third,...

Still, every commission is very special to me. Knowing that people put their trust in me, is crazy. I'm so thankful for every single opportunity I get and do my uttermost to get every portrait as perfect as it can be. I draw every portrait as i is my own animal I have to portray in the best way possible.
