About Elke Klaassen Overdevest
For as long as she can remember Elke Klaassen- Overdevest has been a creative spirit constantly developing and working on new projects. As a creative artist she likes to challenge herself and therefore often explores new grounds. New grounds, new projects that require new skills and materials. As a result, Elke is a skilled, multi- faceted craftswoman who can work with very diverse materials. .

In 2011 she bundled her hobby creative activities under the name of Houtspelmaatwerk, which loosely translates as Custom Made Games. In 2012 Elke decided to take Houtspelmaatwerk to the next level and turned it into a professional company. As the names suggests, Houtspelmaatwerk takes on all kinds of creative projects. Elke became a professional, fulltime artist. She has not looked back since. In 2011 she became interested in face painting and educated herself, via various courses and workshops, in this art. In the course of the last three years she has become a professional, popular face painter. In 2013 she added belly- and body painting to her list of artistic abilities.

Next to her face- and body paint activities, Elke also develops and gives creative workshops, both to children as adults. She also designs and makes custom made fantastical costumes for, for instance, The Elf Fantasy Fair, an annual Dutch Convention for fantasy enthusiasts. As a face- and body painter and costume designer she tries to bring out the best in her models. She looks for the surprising elements, with great attention to detail and the total picture. Everything is designed/made with a specific reason; to bring out the best total effect. She makes sure that her design functions as a unity. That all elements match and complement each other, whether it is a face painting, costumes or attributes or an combination of those. Everything works together.


Imaginative, classy, special effects and sophisticated are the best words to describe the work of Elke. She is a team player who enjoys working alongside fellow artists, likes to share her passion with others and does not shun a challenge. A unique artist, with her own style of whom we have great expectations. !
