Touch wood, feel good.Tree Energy. 


Hello and welcome!

I am a self-taught, intuitive maker and artist. My work with natural materials started from when working as a nature-near landscape gardener 25yrs ago. 

Many people instinctively pick up some unique looking stone, mezmerising root etc. But for some reason I feel a pull to create something with the natural materials I find. 

 

Coloures, shapes, forms etc. have such an impact on our daily life and wellbeing. Our eyes subconsciously need something to hold on, to feel that there is a kind of 'structure' around us. It is nearly impossible to stare into an empty space. (unless you've practised it like zen people or others).


I remember my very first creation made of natural materials  was a clothes rack. The smooth bark from a felled hornbeam branch was ideal for my daughter's room. (at that time a little girl...)

Since then I continued producing decor, art and jewellery.  My ideas multiplied by some creative factor. The ideas come spontaneously, through inspiration and sometimes in a sequence. 


2004-2006 I studied sustainable development at sanu in Biel/CH. It was during an internship at a sustainable property management where I achieved my first insight on how we can actively improve our wellbeing with natural materials and renewable resources.

 

Further studies and work experience as a migration specialist and in environmental education brought me deep insights into the realm of human trauma. But did you know that our landscapes also have a memory? Yes, and many places in the world have been traumatized over the past centuries.

With my products I want to support conscious consumption and raise awareness for our interdependence with mother earth. Nature, environment and wellbeing are therefore themes which always take part in my creations. 

Why Nature deco and Spiritual art?

My products are all eco-friendly, locally produced, organic and sustainable. All are handpicked and handmade by myself, with care, admiration and love. Every piece is unique and therefore an original! 

 

When I take something from a green space, I make sure not to harm plants or trees and pay attention to leave plenty for the habitat.
This is why my products are not always reproducible. (Except for the moonwood which I get from a moonwood specialist), 

Nature is our only source of life, especially with the help of trees. Trees are so big, powerful and beautiful. One feels protected and this creates confidence and calm, 

Living in digital age requires a lot of agility and many people feel overwhelmed. The new cycles change differently and often appear to us as unforeseen. This creates uncertainty and weakens the resilience which often leads to feeling 'disconnected'.

With my work I offer one way of connecting to Mother Nature in order to connect with your inner being. Feeling connected is feeling confident. Feeling confident can help dealing with changes in life.

Wishing you lots of joy and many fullfilling moments with my nature deco, art/ jewellery and spiritual art products.
