Artist of the Day / Emmeline de Mooij / Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I wasn’t able to take photos directly from her website, so have posted what I could from Google Images.  The best way to view her work is to go to her website and start with her earliest work first–2004.                            http://www.emmelinedemooij.com/
