May 2025

In Harry's car we are violently shaken as we drive through the Tabernas desert, on the way to his friends Laurence and Bree who have found their home in the middle of the Spanish wilderness. You are very welcome to meet them.


Participate in a course in May 2025 Simone Henken, Symbolism in portrait.

I'm the founder of Smart by Art because I love creating and I breath, live and love art. It brings me joy and happiness which I want to share.

I'm a visual artist, photographer and coach. I have a wonderful, spacious house in Amsterdam in an exceptional neighborhood that I rent out as b&b.  

I also have a house and studio in Lubrin, Andalusia, Spain, which I rent as a b&b too. It has four bedrooms: 3 with private bathrooms and an extra bedroom for family and friends (shared bathroom).

In my studio in Spain you can give or take workshops, or retreat from a turbulent world to find inspiration, make your creative dreams come true and connect with a network of Spanish artists and institutions.

I travelled the world, worked hard, and learned a lot. Now it's time to share my experience, practice the Art of living and live life to the fullest.

Please join.
