Edith Kuyvenhoven is an Amsterdam-based comic artist, illustrator and live cartoonist. Born in Stadskanaal and raised in Enschede, she moved to Amsterdam to study at the Rietveld Art Academy. Since 2002, she has worked as a freelance artist for such clients as Volkskrant Banen, Cultuur-Ondernemen, Manuscripta (CPNB Foundation), The School of Life, Cinekid, and the Lowlands festival. Her children's book 'Pim en To aan Zee' was published by Pimento in 2005.
For several years, she made a weekly cartoon about a dispirited guinea pig called 'Elp de Cavia', who also made his appearance on T-shirts and postcards. She got a grant for the creation of her first comic book, 'Ik, God en mijn oma', a story about the author's grandmother filled with childhood memories and anecdotes. It was published by Catullus and presented at Gallery Lambiek in 2010. Kuyvenhoven currently prepares her second book, works as a live cartoonist and is committee member with the Grant Programme for Design of the Dutch Creative Industries Fund.
