About me

Who is Annette van der Swaluw?

Nice that you want to know more about where I come from and who is behind the artworks and workshops. Below you will find a short biography, a creative curriculum and my story.
In my creative curriculum you will find out how I acquired my expertise in colored pencil. I especially owe a lot to Jenny Post, who guided me in botanical drawing with colored pencil for several years.

Thanks to my muse

Every day I am inspired by my love, Eric van der Swaluw, who sees me in all my colorfulness.
(and I see that in him too ❤️). I always thought muses were female, but now I know that’s not the case.

Thanks to Mother Earth

You can read that I love the Earth and Life in this Letter to the Earth. (use Google translate if you can’t read Dutch)
