Baroque Beauty in Bloom

We’ve got a beautiful baroque castle here in Salzburg, called Hellbrunn.

In former times the emperors used it for refreshment in summer. Today you can still visit their pleasant gardens and ponds.

Awakening Nature

Strolling through a forest in spring is always inspiring, especially when you look at nature with a macro lens. These are some of my experiments…

Bookprinting and Bookbinding

Bookbinding is a beautiful process. I did these small notebooks and albums using my handprinted paper.

What I like about them is that every single piece is unique in its print and colour combination.

Work in Progress

A friend of mine is a textile designer and I love to print.

So it was just a matter of time to start printing on fabric. This is going to be our first collaborative piece of work, a beach mat.

We will also take part in this craft fair in April which I´m really looking forward to.

Country of the Master Painters

 

Most Europeans travel to Amsterdam once or twice when they are young for obvious reasons.
I have never been to the capital of the Netherlands before, which I kind of regret.

The city is really  charming and a paradise for lovers of fine art.

Besides whole museums devoted to master painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh, you will find a beautiful idyllic landscape with windmills and green pastures, which makes it easy to imagine how this country has been a source of inspiration for the most skillful artists ever.
