My name is Linda de Klein, I live in the northern Netherlands, in the countryside, surrounded by nature.
I have a demanding job as a financial manager at a small non-profit organization. In addition to my work, I like to relax with various creative and artistic expressions, such as drawing, pottery, clay modelling and photographing, especially landscapes and macro photography. Also I get a lot of energy from working in my nature garden and greenhouse.
The unimaginable variety and inventiveness of nature is my source of inspiration. I always try to add a touch of color and humor to my work.
The series of nosey cats are inspired by my own cats, especially one very perky cat named Turbo, who sadly is no longer with us.

About my avatar and alias:
I’m equiped with a substantial amount of flaming red hair, hence Cuprum, wich means ‘copper’.
My chinese star sign is a tiger. This is merely a happy coincident, because I LOVE tigers. (And by the way don’t believe in star signs…) Therefore my avatar is one of my first ‘nosey cat’ drawings, a ‘nosey tiger’.
