I’ve been drawing as long as I can remember. I always wanted to become an artist, but apparently I had to walk a different path, for when I was a girl of 17, I found myself already working in an advertising agency. That was a long time ago. Then art directors still had to make their own sketches and I was drawing every single day. Loved it!
And now a few years later, I still draw every day. The animals and birds around the Zwet (the lake behind my house) is my biggest source of inspiration
My daily drawings are a way to tune in to the day. How do I feel? How is the world doing? And how are you?! I will always try to touch you in a way, to make you smile, to comfort you or to help you to check for yourself…how am I today?
Constant Bear and the Looking Owl
Inspired by a Tai Chi exercise “The Constant Bear and the Looking Owl”, I made two series of 100 bears and owls.
Working on a third series right now. This time a White Crane joins Bear and Owl.
