about me :
... I was born in 1957 in Erlangen. My father was a hunter and so I spent my childhood mostly in nature, collecting feathers, bones and feeding the animals in winter. I raised sparrows, ducks and squirrels - orphaned animals I found in the woods. In early childhood I began to immerse myself in the cycles of life, in becoming and passing away, in life and death ... I made small figures out of skins and bones, skinned hedgehogs, mice and foxes, decorated my room with them - in this way I unconsciously "saved" the spirit of the animals into something new, lasting, spiritual.
My youth was marked by refusal and non-conformity! At school I was only interested in art and extracurricular activities. I could have and wanted to take an artistic path, but my parents made it impossible for me as "breadless art". At the end of this time I had the specialized baccalaureate for agriculture, horticulture and forestry, as the only socially recognized paper.
I have worked in agriculture, as a shepherd, as a glassmaker, as a freelance artist, as a janitor at a Waldorf school. I have run a natural food store, I have given experiential and wilderness education to young people, I have raised sheep and goats.
I continue my non-adapted life until today, the "red thread "in it is the work with nature, people, animals, plants - in a spiritual context.
Since 2013 I have been walking my path together with the shaman Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq. Since then my workshop for ceremonial objects is growing. Through the internet and at markets, fairs and seminars with healers, shamans and people working spiritually, I exhibit my work and sell special healing plants.
Since 2015 I conduct Kambô treatments , ceremonies with the frog spirit from the South American jungle.
