nature and architecture
What is landscape? Watch out! Here is a good definition written by Ton Lemaire, a dutch philosopher:

At first glance, the word "landscape" seems to refer exclusively to nature, the rural, even the Arcadian. But on closer inspection it appears that traces of human presence can be found in almost all landscapes: almost everywhere one sees houses, an entire city sometimes or ruins; or else there is a walker, a farmer in the field, a fordable place, or a church tower on the horizon. So I may carefully conclude that indeed every landscape contains something of nature as well as of man. Now when I call all traces of people in the landscape "culture", I come to the conclusion that a landscape is a view of both "nature" and "culture".
Ton Lemaire, philosopher

Landscapes grow, change, get meanings or loose meanings. Time is of importance here. What can we see in the landscape? Can we follow its history in time? Can we add meaning?
In my work I try to unravel the mysteries of layered landscapes.
My name is Gitta Pardoel. I am a freelance illustrator, artist, architect and art teacher. My work is about landscape, traces of culture and nature, change in time. I like soft and constructed, architecture and flora.
I love the singing of the..... before sunset, of flowering allium, the smell of kamperfoelie and of playing the guitar.

I can help you with making illustrations or my artworks.

My works are:
Soft and constructed
Sometimes handmade, sometimes made with the computer
They have a soft light sphere
You can see landscape and architecture
Artistic and constructed
