Art from the heart

Mika van Vonderen

Mika van Vonderen (1970) is a visionary. Growing up as a farmer’s daughter in a family of five in a little town called Zeeland (North Brabant), she dreamed about freedom. Like a butterfly she fluttered through her care-free childhood. However, a stubborn butterfly she was! ‘I always did it my way, or I didn’t do it at all’. She occupied herself with ‘creating beautiful things’; painting, fumbling with all kinds of materials, building huts and braiding with reeds.
