Marjolein Bastin

Marjolein’s work currently is enjoyed the world over. In addition to her partnership with Hallmark, she provides ongoing contributions to a variety of product partners in Europe and North America. She also writes and illustrates children’s books featuring the endearing Vera the Mouse character, which she created. Through her art and words, Marjolein offers people a simple reminder to pause and enjoy nature and allow it to be a source of serenity, energy, and healing.

Her workday often begins as early as 6 a.m. and extends into the evening, as she sits at her worktable, which inevitably is crowned with flowers or other finds from the day’s walk. Brush in hand, she brings her special relationship with the world full circle: Nature captivates her, and she captures it to share with others.

Her passion for the natural world is of a universal quality that appeals to people the world over. You can find Marjolein’s artwork on greeting cards, calendars, dinnerware, bedding, gifts and many other products.
