"Henk Stemerdink grew up surrounded by nature where he developed a love for all things alive.
Expressing that creativity is like imagery to him.
Thus he ‘paints’ when designing his garden.
‘From an early age on I have had my own garden, in which scents, shapes and colours are important. I allowed nature to take its course and I played with coincidences. Existing elements proved to be sources of inspiration rather than obstacles."
