Every now and then I find something really inspirational on Pinterest!
I discovered Marjolein Bastin!
Quoting JoAnne Carter’s “Marjolein Bastin’s” Pinterest board:
Marjolein Bastin is a Dutch-noted nature artist, writer, children’s author and illustrator. She is the creator of the character “Vera the mouse”. A Hallmark designer discovered Marjolein’s artwork while on a trip to Holland in the early 1990s. Today, stationery, greeting cards, home décor items, and gifts in Hallmark’s Nature’s Sketchbook by Marjolein Bastin line are among the company’s best-selling offerings.
I love her detailed and finely sketched paintings of garden and nature scenes.
So pop over to her website and enjoy the exquisite beauty of her nature art and add her to your “Famous Contemporary Artist of the Month”.
