From Monday May 10th to Sunday May 16th I'll be participating for the second time in a
beautiful project with these wonderful ladies: Linda RusconiEdith Brouwer, Saskia Lensink
and Marja de Bruijn.

From May 10th to May 16st we will be drawing/ painting/ printing at, and in the vicinity of,
De Bonte Zwaan, Amsterdam.

Every day we add our new work to the walls of 'Dek West'.

It's near water, so big, broad views instead of "cluttered" forests. It will be such a different
environment for me to draw & paint 🎨

You can follow our progress on Instagram by following #KunstAanDek 👩🏻‍🎨

We're open by appointment from Thursday May 13th to Sunday 16th, from 15:00 to 18:00 hours.

This october my friend and fellow artist Katja Berkenbosch and I will exhibit our latest work.

Katja Berkenbosch and Melissa Halley; two different artists who show three different
disciplines; watercolour, linoprints and paper art.

What they share - in addition to friendship - is an eye for detail, that which is vulnerable and
a connection with and longing for nature.

Katja and Melissa met at Artplein Spui where they showed their art, a friendship grew, as well
as recognition and a deepening interest in each other's work.

Both are members of the Sint Lucas Artists Association.
However, the Vleugelslag exhibition at MLB Gallery is the first time they will exhibit their art

The Vleugelslag exhibition can be visited throughout October. The gallery is open on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday (and by appointment).

During the entire exhibition, Katja and Melissa are present in the gallery on Saturday and

If you want to see Katja and / or Melissa on one of these days, it's best to let us know up front.
It is always possible that one of us has to leave a little earlier 😉

Unfortunately due to covid-19 we can't have more than 6 guests at a time during the opening
on Friday October 2nd. 

That's why we decided to work with time slots of one hour during the opening.

Together with artists Edith Brouwer, Marja de Bruijn, Saskia Lensink and Linda Rusconi I will be
exhibiting my art at the Kunstkapel (Art Chapel) at the Beatrixpark.

Everything will be based on and created day by day at the Beatrixpark so the exhibition will
literally grow every day.

We will be inspired by it's nature, the people and neighbourhood in and around the park.
All of us work in different techniques like drawing, painting, watercolour, printing and more.

You can follow our progress on the following dates:
- Wednesday May 22nd to Friday 24th - 15.00 to 17.00 hours.
- Saturday May 25th - 15.00 to 18.00 hours.

This last festive day we'll add other artwork and other related items for sale in addition to the art
we made that week.
