A few words about Myriam and her work:

Myriam’s works have a silent eloquence that could benefit  her time and generations to come.

If the people of this Earth could see the beauty of nature as through her eyes,
they would stop destroying it. And if they could see themselves as through her moments of 
quiet contemplation, there would not be so much falseness in this world....

...Immortal Gardener,

you who respect even the tiniest of seeds, teach us the patience to let the all grow from the nothing:
God is the seed of all, you teach me, and the seed of all is the tiniest of seeds.
That is why, you told me, one does not see God.”

van Chapman

If Art is about inner truth, then nothing could be more actual in this world (of global warming, fratricide wars), than the treasures Myriam Vandenberghe discovers or creates in the silence of her kind soul. Rather than futuristic nightmares, I would rather  live in  the magical gardens she architects for the future: The green, pure, innocent, violence-free worlds  she paints and photographs.

As  the great classical music, Myriam's art and being, can be seen today as of another time; and  forgotten.
How much per cent of the population listens to the treasure of classical music in Radio stations as Klara? Alarming statistics in the past, if I remember well, said it is around one per cent of the population in the area.  I do not know if it has evolved.
The explanation for this phenomena is in the spiritual level of the masses.
As the stronger wavelengths of popular radio stations (like radio Donna) have dulled away the cultural radios, as Klara, in Belgium,  pop culture gurus would dull her work off the scene.

For most of the people, the real treasure of classic music or of Myriam's art is still buried.

Has the time come for it to be discovered ?  I can only present this mysterious person to you, personally, or through my own work, and hope you will see them as the treasures they are. The answer depends on you.

Orders and portraits can be asked personally to the artists.

With one of those ckassic Flemish painters as Van Eyck
you could buy more than one apartment building in NY city.
But the paintings of Myriam,
which if you see the original ones are as fine as a Van Eyck,
today do not even pay her working hours.The prices now
range from 1/2 to 4 thousand euros (multiply by 3 fot reais).
Once a year we make an exhibition
and sometimes only receive many compliments....
And we need a marchand to sell, but we still live and feel rich!
