Tineke was born in Holland. When she emmigrated to Canada, she brought an interesting art technique with her...Garden Spirits fabric sculpture.

Her sculptures are the ultimate in recycling. Made from natural fibre such as cotton and wool, they provide a unique opportunity to give new life to old T-shirts, fancy linens... and Grandma's old doilies.

Each "Spirit" tells a story, creating tranquility wherever it rests. Each may be left indoors or out, all year round!

Best of all -- "They make you smile!"
Placed near a pond, a path, a garden, a brook.
In a kitchen, a den, on a shelf, in a nook.
With sedentary grace, each figure will cry:
"I am your Spirit... a new friend to sit by."
