Maquenda's Profile Picture
Meike Hakkaart
Artist | Student | Digital Art
I'm Meike Hakkaart, also known as Maquenda, a freelance Illustrator who specializes in nature and fantasy illustrations and photography.

I am a naturalist and wildlife/fantasy painter. I see beauty in the ''wild, weird and wonderful'' aspects of life.
