Left with debts to pay and a family to support,  unable to afford passage back to Belgium for her family, van Nooten was undeterred by her  situation. She realized that flower books were all the rage in Europe, and decided to put her artistic skills to good use by painting the exotic plants and flowers of her home in exile.she marketed a selection of her paintings as chromolithographs and published under the title Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'Ile de Java Peints D'Après Nature, the first edition of which appeared in 1863-4 with the backing of the Queen of the Netherlands.
