After graduating from high school in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, Flos Vingerhoets left for Brussels, Belgium, where she studied at École de Recherche Graphique. She majored in Visual Communications, specializing in illustrations and drawing comics. She then went on to study at Amsterdam University (UvA) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where she got her Propedeuse in Communications. She started her career as an illustrator soon after.
She's been drawing covers for magazines, illustrating children's books, and (school) books ever since. She's worked for different newspapers such as Algemeen Dagblad and Financiele Dagblad, and magazines like Elsevier, Allerhande and Cosmogirl.
