I am an artist with passion for gardens, drawing, painting and writing

 I love flora and landscapes, birds and trees. I love the singing of the blackbird in the evening, the smell of honeysuckle and the taste of wild strawberries. I am passionate about gardens and the importance of harmony with nature for our lives. I design (ecological) gardens and to help knowledge of biodiversity and nature I illustrate and write children books.  I make art so you will have always a little piece of hapiness in your home.

Oli en Koer

Oli her grandmother has died and she tries to tell her friend Koer, but Koer lost his nest, shall they be able to help each other? picture book.
I wrote and draw this book because my mother died and I saw how my son reacted and this loss. And when I read that elephants really cried when loosing a family member it was for me clear that one of the main characters should be an elephant. also elephants are endangered species.
