In 2020, at 70, after more than 25 years, I started painting again.  A lot of catching up to do. Whereas I loathed my christian names during my whole life, I seem to be able to sign my work only with my christian names given at birth: Goverdina Maria.

Charity for children
I have no professional art ambitions, but I sell my paintings for charity, all profits go to: War Child and Het Vergeten Kind (The Forgotten Child).
Most paintings below are available, frame included, and of course they come with a signed Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).  Shipping costs are not included outside The Netherlands. These pages are in English because of my international friends and clients. You’re most welcome. See if there’s anything for you (or for someone else) and help a child in need.
