Much progress made after a problem with the system: 

the Appearances page is restored! 

 Thanks for your patience.

NEW I won three months of international sponsorship in various galleries of my choice. My work has been exhibited virtually 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 everyone's 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 showed 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


 In April 2022 my work appeared virtually in ART EINDHOVEN, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

in the beautifully restored original Philips electronics factory, 

built in 1922 and designed by architect Dirk Roosenburg. 

Fall 2021  

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

avilable 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. 

Please look under Art/Fashion Blog on this site for updated images.  

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