Hi, my name is Miep Bos.

Nowadays I live in Lelystad, a town below sea-level where the environment is still clear. I live together with my husband Jan-Willem in "Sidhadorp" a part of Lelystad where most of the population practise the Transcendental Meditation technique as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi




During the last Art Circle Concert I got the Art Circle Lelystad Award 2003 from Mrs. Janneke Segaar, one of the founders of the Art Circle Lelystad. The other founder is Mrs. Christina Dorjee, The Art Circle is founded in 1994. That afternoon we enjoyed the music of Willem Hellbreker, known from North Sea Festival, I could make sketches of him, while he was playing his music. His latest CD is a must!

In 2003 and 2004 there was a big, travelling, international group exhibition, which I have been organizing. It was called the Gentech Free Objects and Paintings Exhibition, or No GMO's Exhibition." of about 18 artists, Among them was Wieteke Moody- van Dort, A famous artist and TV-performer. The artists made art about GMO's or art about the healing of the earth. The frame, cloth and paint were not made of GMO's.

About my work.

My main work consists of watercolors, acrylic paintings on canvas and ink drawings or a combination of this. I have my own style. I create happy landscapes, dreamy women, buildings and old-timers (classical cars). Most paintings have a somewhat mystic atmosphere, and also a touch of humor. People often say, that looking at them, makes them happy. The paintings are warm, honest and naive in a good sense.When I create I become very quiet. Out of that quietness the painting is born. I also make photos of vintage cars, animals and flowers.

My favorite painters are van Gogh, because painting was his life, Edward Hopper, because of his unique atmosphere and Pierre Bonnard, because he loved to paint just like me. A great site on Hopper you can find here.

If you want to look at some of my pictures than go to one of my virtual galleries.

I make photos of classical cars for a couple of years now. In 2000 I had an exhibition of these photos in Hotel Mercure in Lelystad, when 800 classical cars did visit Lelystad. You can see some of these photos in gallery 4.

I am very worried about genetically engineered food, so I have dedicated a website to genetically modified food.
