The Spring 2023 edition of the Still Point Arts Quarterly (USA)
shows my work again. Two graphite drawings within the theme
In February 2023 ART EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, displayed several images virtually again.
I still think this is a great way to go within international shows.
In April 2022 my work appeared virtually in ART EINDHOVEN, Eindhoven, The Netherlands,
an international show in the beautifully restored original Philips electronics factory,
built in 1922. The Spring 2023 edition of the Still Point Arts Quarterly
I won three months of virtual international sponsorship in various galleries of choice. My work has been exhibited at the Lelie Galerij in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Urban Side Gallery in Zurich and the Thomson Gallery in Zug, both in Switzerland, and at the ARTBOXY exhibition at the Venice Biennale, Italy, in June, July and August 2022. Thanks for everyones kind and professional help. And to my cousin Frank for his energetic support of my work at the Lelie Galerij!
The Moskou Pavillion and Apothecary Garden invited the work of
a group of international botanical artists in March. We hope that our work
provided their audiences with a few moments of peace.
The Grimm Foundation in California was interested in a few images of mine for their Edible Schoolyard Project. It teaches very young children to cultivate a small garden, sow, bring it to fruition and enjoy the crop with their loved ones during a family meal.
Thanks to Raj Cheshire.
The "Hortus Alkmaar Project", a 2019-2020 collaboration
of the Dutch Association of Botanical Artists (VBKN)
and the Hortus Alkmaar. Initiated by Margriet Honingh, working members of the VBKN
created a collection of paintings of which beautiful fine art prints were made
avaible to audiences at large to support the Hortus.
The beautiful Dutch outdoor living magazine Buitenleven (www.buitenleven.nl)
needed lots of botanical illustrations for
a 2019 series of articles on permaculture.
A beautiful project, permaculture gaining momentum world wide.

The magazine appeared in The Netherlands and in Flanders, Belgium.
