Artist statement: 

“Magic is unfolding, as soon as I work with a tree.

I work with bark prints directly on living trees, which get turned into art by highlighting their natural beauty.

Beautiful stuctures form into gods, dwarfs, witches and other creatures.

They are magically becoming visible on my prints.

I try not to manipulate but to unveil them. 

Trees gift me with all kinds of stories, depending on their cultural environ-ment. It seems as if the trees record the history of their place and of their “invisible” inhabitants.

Beautiful structures are visible on the bark after printing.

The trees look like pieces of art themselves and attract the attention of the people to something they usually don’t look at.

I try to open people through the beauty of nature. I hope that seeing the manifestations on my pictures, makes them reflect about a consciousness, that inhabits everything around us.

Ultimately, some viewers will be able to gain access to the spiritual aspects of nature and then treat it with more respect.”
