Lies de Rooij (b.1991) is a The Hague based mixed media artist and illustrator. She received her BFA in Fine arts from The Royal academy of Arts, The Hague as well as a propedeuse in Visual Design from St. Lucas, Gent.

Her photography-based practice submerges from her amazement for the world, its systems, perspectives and interpretations. She captures these findings in what she calls dreamscapes. Projects can entail fine arts prints, installations, booklets and posters – with humor often as the protagonist.

Her present body of work include illustrations for digital and publishing projects, fine art prints and other personal works.

Lies is represented by YEDS

Her clients include:
RTHA, Lorang&CO, De cultuurschool, Bibliotheek Den haag, Kunstuitleen Rotterdam Team Typisch,
