Born and lived most of my life in or in the outskirts of northern European forests, I feel very much at home there, never afraid of getting lost.

The spicy fragrances, the merry fresh water streams, the softness of the mosses, spreading in carpets, the rough hard granite, the sounds…

And the delicate flowering plants! The berries to fill baskets! And later on mushrooms! The forests are full of poetic usefulness…

Shinrin-yoku, ‘Forest bathing’ in Japanese, means being in the forest, just for enjoying without purpose or activity. I hope my paintings will give you a visual forest bath.

You find information on size, price and more when you click an image. For purchase of originals, please contact me. There are some prints available in the Shop.

This forest and water theme is my most recent focus and passion and it will continue, lots more to explore and share!
