Eveline BervoetsBreb, Maramures, RO
My name is Eveline Bervoets [my last name is pronounced as ‘barefoots’ :)] and I was born 33 years ago in the Netherlands.
Recently I’ve started illustrating the world around me, which has changed quite a bit since I moved five years ago from my Dutch home town to a small village in northern Romania. My boyfriend and I started a new life in Breb and together with our four year old daughter and baby boy we now live in a traditional wooden farm on the edge of the village, at the foot of a beautiful mountain.
Now being here, making illustrations about the daily village life, I feel even more connected with the land and its people, observing and indulging every tiny bit around me. Aiming to capture the atmosphere and essence of this life in my own way gives me a lot of peace and and above all a lot of joy. I hope the beautiful piece of world here will shine through my paintings and inspire you as well, enjoy!
The recipe you'll find here is inspired on my Romanian 'granny', her kitchen and her delicious doughnuts! Happy baking! :)
