Greetje Penning  is a Frisian visual artist, poet, writer and folk herbalist. In her work she explores the colours, myths, stories, songs and elemental forces of the northern landscapes and folk. She makes doorways to other realms,  the realms of dreams, imagination and magic.

 

She runs a small herbal apothecary in her hometown, where she lives with her husband and children.
