About me

Hello and welcome to de Chouchoukes.

Congratulations! You found your way to this site and probably are as big an animal lover as I am.

To tell you how De Chouchoukes begun, I'll start close at home.

I am the surrogate mother of two Holy Birmans, Raphaël and Chanel. Raf and Nel for short. My infinite love for them inspired me to capture them in vintage painting-like portraits. My furry twin loved to let themselves get photographed and they were with me every step of the way, watching while I turned them into the first royal Chouchoukes. Soon enough family and friends joined in and supported my new idea.

Et voilà, De Chouchoukes was born.


It was time for something new, something creative, something I could share with other people. My former artistic courses, such as graphic techniques, photography and interior design, already paved the way for me. It was only logical that I would find a way to combine my skills and knowledge, and so I did. My shiny portfolio, in which all my previous adventures are bundled, can be found here: www.kristelvanroosendael.be

Animals are very important to me, I couldn't imagine a life without them.

In between my orders and projects I like to head out into nature and go for a walk with some wagging shelter dogs.

It's my way of reloading my batteries. Free love and free hugs.  

I hope you find something you like on the website.

Kind regards,


"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
