Like everyone I’m in the middle of 'working with' the Corona situation. I have been working from home for the past eight weeks and it hasn’t been easy. But I am able to see this as a blessing in disguise as I was able to see my son do his first steps and have also been able to talk to some of my friends and contacts on a much deeper level. The rose which I have placed on the cover of this Edition, floats in our galaxy and is meant as a sign of support for all the artists who are striving in these troubling times. To them I say: stay strong, stay safe, and keep up the good work. 

In this edition, Anita Wong will show you her amazing work. I have followed her for some time, and I love the way she has matured as an artist. I was honored to receive the image of the ink drawing, 'Kitten', on page 8 of this edition and I assure you that it’s even more impressive in real life!

I am also happy to introduce Jacolien de Jong, who featured in last edition, as our newest member of our 'Art by Nature-family' with her new column 'Nature's Vision'. She joins our 'oldest' columnist who always enlightens, Merel Slootheer, who in these times shares her personal perspective on 'hope'. And there are many more fantastic artists who talk about their inspiration and share a look into their creative processes.

Finally, I am pleased to announce a great new collaboration is in progress. I was in contact with Constantijn Hoffscholte, the adjunct-directeur of the Flower Art Museum Aalsmeer through Instagram account. We had a great talk, as Constantijn is also a journalist with lots of contacts in the art industry. I am hoping for something amazing and for Art by Nature to reach even more artists and share their great creations.

Many thanks again to Stephen King,
a lecturer in media at Middlesex University Dubai and his students for continuing to
help me edit the articles for Art by Nature magazine.




Thank you and enjoy edition 13!
