    Marjon de Jong is a versatile and respected artist at home and abroad. Besides many exhibitions in galleries and museums in The Netherlands, she also exhibited in, among others, the United States, Japan, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, and Germany. In 1992, she had a major exhibition at Art Miami.

    By invitation, she also held workshops and lectures in Spain, Switzerland, the United States, and Japan. Currently, preparations are being made for a documentary about the life and work of De Jong.

    Sumi-e is a traditional oriental art form of (mainly) black ink painting on rice paper. Marjon started to paint in 1985. For a couple of years, she took lessons with Eiko Kondo, who quickly noticed that Marjon had a natural talent, particularly in the zen style, i.e. the art of omitting. She is said to have an exact sense of and a perfect balance in composition. These qualities must be innate, they cannot be learned.
