This image is called tenderness because it evokes the same emotion in me.


During the years I lived in Mali I looked at sand everyday

Every single day of my stay I could observe the work of the most powerful transformer

and the greatest sculptor of all times

who shapes everything according to his likes. 

with the power of his mighty lover - the wind. 
I love this image in particular because you can see their love making when the sand is whipped over the beach, shaping, modeling and changing the leaf's appearance in the front while at the side sand particles are racing like wild horses trying to escape.

Sand and wind are lovers creating sculptures together

that are so hard to imitate

that you are afraid to try

I have created a jewelry styleboard with some of my latest designs. Colorful urban African jewelry making use of many different materials.

The House Is Empty Now

Since a couple of years African wasps return every year to build their nest in my beach-cupboard, an old white painted cupboard on the veranda, used to store shells, drift wood and other beach finds waiting to find new existence and meaning of life in jewelry or other art objects.  

When the larvae have left, that have been protected by an amazing mud structure hanging on one arm until their day of freedom and maturity has come, they leave the most beautiful piece of architecture behind.

If your wish is your true desire it will come to you. 
I said my wish silently that a beautiful butterfly might want to rest for a while in front of me.
My deep wish was to see it completely fearless and feeling safe close to me.

I asked and prayed so nice that it must not move
for me to see the hair and color on its velvet wings

I asked and prayed real nicely for some days
that it might slowly unfold and close its wings.
Because for me that signifies true magic

I asked and prayed so intensely
that it would not move so that I could lay next to it 
for me to see his big eyes

My wish was to see a completely different form of life feeling free and careless next to me. 


Look up !
Cause up and above is the blue sky and the sun. And the clear fresh air. And the mighty wind -hot or cold.
Above your head are the birds stretching their wings sailing through the sky. Get inspired by their fearlessness and their understanding of freedom.
Up there are the clouds chasing each other and riding the sky-ocean.
Above is vastness and spirit. Up there are other spirits living their spirit life but observing your existence.
Power comes from above and runs through you to the ground.
Up there are answers.
So look up !
Especially when the sky is blue.

There goes the saying when you find a feather that means there is an angel close by.

True transparency comes often with death like the leaves of this dying flower that lived only 2 days.

What is hidden behind these doors is kept secret. But what a beautiful old building.
