Thanks for stopping by my store!
My brother, Jeffrey Zylstra, created all of this original artwork featuring Amsterdam's famous tulips.
From 1979-1984, he studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, a university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design.
During his lifetime, he dealt with different themes from flowers to insects to cities. The tulip series is a part of his flower period (around 1995-2000). My brother made me a series of 12 different contemporary interpretations of tulips in oils. To read more about his work, please visit his website: www.jeffreyzylstra.nl.
I currently live in Amsterdam, and I can't get enough of it! I recently moved back into the center of the city to embrace the authentic Amsterdam lifestyle. I enjoy spending long afternoons riding my bike through the city (the same bike by which I deliver all products right to your hotel!).
I love making people aware of the beauty of Amsterdam and, more importantly, allowing everyone to leave my country with a colorful, real Dutch memento. Creating unique, yet recognizable souvenirs is why we're in business -- souvenirs made with love in Holland and Amsterdam.
For centuries, the Netherlands has been associated with tulips. Known for their simplicity and beauty, tulips continue to inspire me each and every day. I hope they can do the same for you through one of our original works of art.
I sincerely hope you enjoy Amsterdam and all that it has to offer. Please feel free to send me any questions via our contact page.
All my best,
