  • How paintings help with grief
    May 29, 2024 Two years ago I decided to make a painting of Mitsy’s signature move: looking at the world topsy-turvy. She still loves to do this and she is the only cat I have ever had that does that. Not long after, I also felt called to paint our other resident cat, Suzi. And of course Mitsy… Read More »

About this website
This website is about art, travel, cats and lots of other stuff. From today’s day and from yonder years…
Our lives are like a suitcase filled with stories and experiences. My husband and I currently live in beautiful Canada, in the large province of Ontario. We are originally from The Netherlands and Belgium, and after years of traveling we have found a home on the North American continent. For us, a home would not be a home without cats; many of our feline friends have traveled the world with us. A special section of this website is dedicated to many of them. But there are also stories and visuals about my adventures all over the globe. Do let us know what you think – we love reading your feedback!
