Even as a young boy the sea inspired me - and here – especially that in vacation at the the sea my parents spent chips and ice cream (and significantly more often than at home) and I could collect sea shells. Kilos, I have dragged and left the cleaning up and sorting after the holiday to my parents.
But they did not have the necessary seriously for this job.
A lot of my precious treasures has been "disposed of" in my parents' garden under the Rodondendron - future archeologists will be surprised to find seashells a few hundert miles away from the sea.
It still fascinates me to collect and to watch shells, snail shells and other flotsam. - conceived and created by our Creator God - wonderful monuments of nature!
Then many new ideas matured how to improve these artworks to make them even more beautiful and livelier.
Be it through the perfect technical production of the frame, the color selection of the mat, the arranging of the objects or the gilding of individual pieces - everything has to fit together to create a full picture, which is according to your expectations.
Solingen / NRW / Deutschland
You´ll find my workshop, me and my sea shells in Solingen, a small town in the „Bergisches Land“, near Cologne and Duesseldorf (but unfortunately about 250km away from the the sea).
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
