Mesmerising rhythm of writing - Review for Kwela Books, South Africa

'This author writes well; she draws evocative descriptions with delight and enchant. "Thorney bougainvillea brances with fucsia flowers danced their last dance as they were carried off to be burnt". Her words find an easy-to read, mesmerising rhythm which lulls the reader into a gentle frame of mind. The author has lived a busy, interesting life, which I enjoyed reading about.

Review on Modeshow, Monart Studio and Gallery, by Shirley Clancy

"This was Belgian-born, and Perth-based Tineke's first solo exhibition in Australia of her jewellery and handbags.
Using the unusual method of professional models on a catwalk with background projectuions of Tineke's pieces
interspersed with scenes of landscape, birds and animals from Australia and Africa and set to a great sound track
of Australian, Belgian and African music, the jewellery, handbags and belts were displayed to an engrossed mixed audience."

Review on Carry, a mixed exhibition at the Old Bakery gallery

"Tineke Van der Eecken made beguilding bags from handknitted or crochet sterling silver, copper and coloured wire.
Incorporated with the wire were glass beads, semiprecious stones (some found by her geologist husband) and seed pearls.
Her bags were themed with such titles as Eclipse, Nullarbor and Desert Scene and were based on actual places and events that Tineke had experienced.
Many of the bags were hand painted silk and Tineke had made all of the fittings and clasps."
