Made several albums again and performed on Dutch Radio and Television.

During all those years of traveling she continued painting and drawing. Once a painter, always a painter. The work has many facets. Feelings and impressions, sometimes subtile, but also powerful and above all the use of bright colors are specific for her art. Expressionism, Abstract as well as Figurative paintings, explosions of color, gold and bronze, memories and emotions are telling their story.
Josina uses mixed techniques, some developped herself, in a very personal style, abstracts, flowers and landscapes, recognizable or with free expression. The composition,technique, the colors and the shapes are giving an extra dimension to her paintings. They have to be "beautiful" not boring and always a pleasure to look at.

“Its the pervading Law of all things organic or non-organic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all the true manifestations of the head,
Of the heart, of the soul,
That the life is recognizable in its expression,
That form always follows function,
That is the Law”.

Henri Labouste 1801-1875
