  • Sale! floral artichoke 50x50
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Artichoke by Myrte.The Artichoke is beautiful and tasty! We eat it before it gets the chance to blossom so I want to share with you the beauty of the blossom. I also like the symbolic side of it. The tough outer leaves of the flower, like scales, protecting the inner fibers which are soft and delicate and have this beautiful purple hue. When I showed this illustration to my mother she remembered her cousin bringing her an artichoke flower years back that she dried and kept for years. I love it when my illustrations evoke a memory!

  • bies merel baby copy
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Blackbird baby by Myrte.While I am looking out the window the inspiration comes to me: a female blackbird and her husband are building a nest. They're looking for branches and moss. Now the goal is to make one of those cute little blackbirds. Dad will make sure that mom has enough to eat and stays healthy. This time of year mommy's boss. In winter dad determines the rules, but now feeding mom and keeping her healthy is top priority. My job in this project is very important too: I have to make sure the backyard stays cat-free for a while.

  • bies achterkant zwart copy
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Blue Jay by Myrte.Please allow me to introduce the Blue Jay of the North American forests. He is dressed like a prince. He is beautifully decorated with crown and bright feathers, sitting on his throne, a telephone pole. I have seen quite a lot of princes in the USA. You see a blue flash cross at the side of the road. I reckon he shares the land with a lot of colleagues.

  • bies achterkant midnight blue copybies bluethroat 40x40_
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Bluethroat by Myrte.If you’ve never seen a Blue throat on a photo before, you might think I am making him up. I saw him on the other side of the world, in India. Keoladeo National Park is a beautiful place.  I was cycling on an Indian bicycle trying not to fall off while shooting the beauty of the land, with in one hand my camera, and steering with the other. He has such a diverse pallette of colours. And fashion-wise I don’t think brown matches the bright blue of his bib very well. But if he’s fine with it, that is okay.

  • bies chickadees mint copy
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Chickadees in mint by Myrte.Before I ever met a chickadee, I was fascinated by the cute name already. There are no chickadees over here in The Netherlands. A lot of look-a-likes and European cousins, but this little one has quite a good reputation that preceded the actual encounter I had with him. So I was very curious about this cutie. We were walking in a bird estuary here when I saw some small birdies in the corner of my eye, flying away. They had black little heads so I suppressed an excited scream; this must be the world famous chickadee! I walked a bit further away, and there they were again, teasing me. When I tried to photograph them...they were gone again. Cheeky-dee!

    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Cornflower by Myrte.The Cornflower was a no brainer. It is such a lovely little flower that I see when I go cycling. Tiny flowers shaped like little trumpets form the entire flower. An ingenious piece of work by mother nature I cannot stop admiring.

  • bies achterkant pink copybies kuifmezen
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Crested Titmouse by Myrte.Here they are, three members of the pack of crested tits we saw hunting in the woods. When you hear their 'krrr krr krr' sounds, and then find them way up in a conifer tree, what strikes is their fairytale like little heads. They have pretty, dark brown eyes, and that combined with their mohawk haircut is a cute sight. They move quickly and carefully follow you around pretending to mind their own business. Pretty quickly their will lose interest in you and focus on each other and their food again. It makes you want to join the pack.

  • bies achterkant zwart copybies dansende kraanvogels
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Dancing Cranes by Myrte.Unfortunately I can’t say I have seen this amazing bird in its natural habitat. Perhaps one day I will, but they are very rare. I wanted to draw this bird for a while because they dance. And they fall in love dancing. These romantics hang out in groups and find their love and stay together. We should dance more too. Perhaps then, we’d stick together as long and as happy as they do. The bird is a symbol of luck, health and peace. Which are all very good reasons to draw this bird, don’t you think?

  • heggemus dunnocks
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Dunnocks by Myrte.I have a weak spot for the dull coloured dunnock. And although scientists have found out they don't exactly lead dull lives and are the bird-equivalent of a soap opera, they look cute and endearing to me. Every spring it is the first bird that I hear to announce spring, before the blackbird even. His lengthy song is a little bit premature when it’s still cold. I drew a pair of them sitting cosily and romantically between the cornflowers.

  • bies achterkant moss greenbies kolibrie copy
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Hummingbird by Myrte.I once held one in my hand, a rufous hummingbird. It was quite an amazing experience. She had hit the window and I didn’t think she’d survive. After 5 minutes she woke up again because of the warmth of my hand. Like nothing happened she flew up like a little helicopter. They have a feisty determination that I find very inspiring for such a cute looking little birdie.

  • Sale! floral ixora 50x50
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Ixora by Myrte.The Ixora or Jungle Flame I saw during a walk on the streets of Chiang Mai in Thailand. It was on a corner that I saw this plant in bloom. When visiting Thailand from Europe all plants are new and you feel overwhelmed by the beautiful like flowers that are so brightly coloured. What struck me too was that the Thai love their plants! Even though they live in crowded cities, there’s always room for a plant in front of the house on the sidewalk. I believe our natural state is to be surrounded by green instead of brick, and they do this in such a lovely way. What I liked about the Ixora is the shape of the bright red/orangey flower. It is shaped like a star. And it is so delicately shaped that it seems folded by tiny hands.

He's listening to the water and makes sure no one will take his perfect spot.

    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Little Owl in ecru by Myrte.Finally the little owl is done. It is a baby little owl actually. He still has down on his head. but his wings look more and more like the wings of an adult. Little Owls are moody looking little beauties. I think owls are the strangest birds. They look and behave a bit like cats the yellow eyes, the hunt for mice- except the flying part. This one has a lot to learn to become like the wise owl that once assisted the goddess Athene.

I look outside and see them work their way from left to right, inspecting all spots for food. They hop through the front yards of my neighbours to mine. Within seconds one of them has systematically scanned my Japanese Cherry tree. He fills his little belly with spiders and other tiny critters that he caught on his mission. A colleague hops by him and moves over to the next tree. This is great detective work!

When you see him fly over the fields with his funny flapping and antics you just have to watch this stunt pilot. As a wader he is very vulnerable. He doesn't always feel at home anymore. He has come up with clever tricks to keep thieves away from his nest: he will act injured to lead predators away from his eggs.Unfortunately there are more threats, mostly caused by humans. We should take better care of this jewel in the lands.

The beautiful and supersonically shaped dare devil; the nuthatch. He hangs upside down from a tree and makes a cool ‘powop’ sound. I love his style! Like a mini-torpedo he shoots through the park. Perhaps he is telling me I should try extreme sports myself. But I cannot keep up with this fine piece of technique Mother Nature created.

  • bies postduif copy
    Cushion cover with the illustration of the Pigeon by Myrte.This one I made for my dad. It's his birthday tomorrow, the 18th! After asking about his favorite bird when he was young he said: "The Ruffec!" In the old days, my grandfather was very active in the sport of pigeon racing. And when my dad was a young boy he wanted to have a pigeon to look after too. He got a pair of pigeons he could pet and feed. And to everyone's surprise the male of these lovebirds flew from Ruffec, France home to his lady in the second fastest time! So my dad as a young boy won a prize with his bird! After a while it turned out that the first prize winner had cheated and my dad got the first prize: 25 gulden($15). Alas, this was confiscated by granddad to buy food for the pigeons. But the honor and pride he felt, caring for the birds lasts longer!
