ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
As a kid I already found true peace and deep connectivity within nature. 2 years ago I went unexpectedly to Brasil and stayed 8 months, it is there I connected even more, with nature & myself, I traveled to the root of (my) existence, and learned a lot, especially about letting go and having trust, that we are all one, deeply connected, like the roots of the forest. I’m forever thankful and grateful to have experienced that. If we kill the spirit of the forest and their children, we kill our own spirit. And so the spirit of this planet.
