I am Penelope Deltour,
a visual artist based in Ghent, BE.

My work arises from a deep sense of empathy, with great care for atmosphere and emotion.
Vulnerability and tactility are the common thread in my work. Being able to capture emotions and touch the viewer with images is what drives me as both illustrator and visual artist.
Paper and pencils are my go-to materials to create an image and visualise a story in a poetic and realistic style.
Feel free to contact me:
