Two well-known Dutch artists, Frieda van Voorst and Jan van der Ster, have choosen Garzeno, a magic mountain village high above Dongo on Lake Como as their place to live and work.

Frieda van Voorst uses a variety of imaginative techniques in her work.

Figurative elements are used in abstract compositions; old photographs and bits of text are incorporated and the tittle of the painting is added in Dutch or Italian.

Garzeno inspires her to compose sober, sensitive portraits of its inhabitants.
