Marjolein Bastin creates artwork for greetings cards, calendars, dinnerware, bedding, gifts, and more. Through her art and words, Marjolein offers people a simple reminder to pause and enjoy nature and allow it to be a source of serenity, energy, and healing. Finding inspiration in a bird lighting on a branch or a leaf drying in the autumn sun, Marjolein takes long walks each day to seek new ideas for her artwork and her writings.
"Bastin's handsome book is meant to be carried, tucked into a rucksack with pencils and watercolors, to be used in the field to capture `experiences, observations and nature finds.'" (California Fall Color)
