Text Box: Hi welcome to my web site…. 
 A little about me….well I was born  in 1969 Gippsland Victoria to a creative family… Henk & Greetje Van Tholen my dad a commercial artist and my mum a great garden designer. With my older Sister and Brother we grew up on a grass ski and animal farm in Yinnar South Vic. After finishing my art diploma at T.A.F.E. I worked for a Greeting card company designing and creating cards and wraps. When my Husband and I started our family, I worked from home still designing cards and decoupage wraps but also paintings on corrugated iron, murals, Christmas windows, banners and commissioned work.
Today I still work from home…a small farm at Fish Creek Vic. Painting mainly canvases that have been commissioned, and house lots, through a company that organises, and sets up houses and businesses with interior furniture and contents. Their shop “Interior Packages” at Mornington, also stock a large array of my paintings and folio
I love painting, and feel very lucky to be able to do what I do. I would say my work moves and changes,... and mostly I just follow it along.
With my personalized paintings that people commission me to do. I really find joy in meeting newpeople and creating paintings that they can connect with, and see themselves in, (often it gets them thinking of what is truly important in their lives.) with this and matching colours to interior décor I can usually design a piece that is loved.....
