Art project Art and Trees | Municipality of Oisterwijk (Brabant Province)
In the municipality of Oisterwijk 100 trees were selected for which the same number of artists were invited to work around a tree to make a piece of art.
I have participated with the sculpture Handy Bench with Ditto Light at the Burghtweidepad in Oisterwijk.
Several times Meet & Greet-days were organised when I received visitors at my little bench. A poet on the spot also read from her own work..

Participation with several sculpturs
During the month of November 2013
there was an exhibition on the Island of Ameland
I participated with 4 sculptures
Due to the storm of October 28th 2013, the tree that was embraced by my Tree Sculpture collapsed and took the sculpture with him. From that date onward it became a Monument for the Fallen Tree.

Winter exposition September 4 – October 20 | 2013
Contemporary visual art at De Pol (Overijssel Province)
Participation with 4 sculptures
On Sunday April 22nd 2012 my four sculptures, the Seasons Watchers, at the Provincialeweg in Geersdijk (Zeeland Province, Netherlands) have been unveiled by the Governor of the Province of Zeeland, Mrs. K.M.H. Peijs.
Each sculpture represents one of the four seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. The group symbolises the perpetual
rotation of the seasons. The sculptures are placed opposite each other on both sides of the characteristic dyke. In this way they symbolise the link between tradition and the present. The sculptures are made from steel plate and have bright colours which brighten the landscape in winter and emphasise the green in summer.
The customers are Mrs. Anthonia van Rappard of Hofstede Gallery Lijn 3 and Mr. Rob Bakker of the Rijckholt Estate, located on opposing sides of the dyke. Before, on these estates there were fruit growers located; presently these areas have got a new modern destination: art and care.
In 2012 I was apportioned to design a sculpture for the new Kulturhus De Borg in Babberich (Zevenaar municipality). The outside sculpture served to do justice to all users of the building, like the kindergarten, guild house, brass band, carnival association, sports clubs, senior citizens group and village council. Also the artwork within the building should emphasise the cohesion and interaction between the different rooms used by specific groups.
On Saturday 23 June 2012, the sculpture group at the facade of the Kulturhus in Babberich was unveiled. On November 5 that year the inside component of the Outside-Inside Sculpture was placed. The meandering line moves so to speak from the cafeteria through the window to the hall and the canteen. The colours are referring to the different users of the locations.
