Eco mobility

Last year a colleague of mine supported a thesis he started some 5 years ago, this time as promotor, he guided the students in making good decisions and practical choices. The goal is to drive as far as possible with the engergy equivalent of 1l fuel.

Contemporary Art – Marlies Vermeulen

I have the pleasure to know Marlies Vemeulen, a great artist from Liege. She makes contemporary art in form of ink drawings but doesn’t limit herself to a regular canvas.

The combination of what she draws and what she uses as medium is always original. Still keeping the convenient classy style that can be integrated in the contemporary house-style.

I’m glad to be the owner of some of her work and hope to get some more!
