Let’s make one for YOU!!!
After 10 years of painting and selling original icons and getting great response on every piece I made, I felt the burning desire to make my art available for more people. So last year I started to SELL them on CARDS.
People do appreciate my work so much, but ONLY ONE person can have that one original piece at home. And that’s why I’m opening more SHOPS with more choices to create.
You can find it all here on YOUR ICON (in Dutch: Jouw Icoon)
<<< What about this gift for Mothersday?
Jeannette, you are a genius. This is so so beautiful. Me heart skipped a beat when I first saw this icon. I'm full of admiration of your talent. Thank you. X ... my heart!

People with icons
So much wisdom, talent and patience, with which this Sofia became such an extra ordinary icon. I can move forward with this icon for the next thirty years. The gold radiates from it so far. Thank you very much.
Icons are everywhere
When I was 18 years old I set foot on Greek soil for the first time and felt immediately at home. In spite of the heat, the noise and not knowing the language, I strolled through the streets or mountains with such ease.
While en route I ended up in churches of different size. The church doors were always open and inside it was cool. In addition the lovely smell of insence and fresh basil came from these open doors. And sometimes the lure of polyphony (polyphonic singing). That’s how I discovered icons on the walls and was somehow touched by them. And then somehow I already knew that one day I was going to paint icons myself.

I spent hours watching the icons and frescoes in churches. The quality and the material used were so different from each other. The ‘craziest’ icon seemed good enough to give any holy figure a place in the church.
And you don’t just see icons in the church, but you see them everywhere. In the bus, the taxi, the living room and even, once our landlady in Chios had hang icons in the stable near the donkey. You can buy them anywhere; in the church, but also in the kiosk they are among the lighters, tissues and chewing gum. The cheap house-, garden- and kitchen-icons are glued to pieces of wood, plastic, metal and of course now also to dashboard- and refrigerator magnets. There are many kitsch versions of icons and it seems like everyone has them. Also, on many street corners, even on the most remote peaks and river valleys, there are small chapels with icons.
My icons adorn walls at home and abroad

Artistic feeling combined with a quiet, restrained nature can be called the best condition for the development of mental faculties. With this feeling one penetrates through the surface of things into the secrets of their being.Rudolf Steiner
