Ink drawings

Trees and their strong roots.

This series of ink drawings is dedicated to trees and magical places in the middle of the forest. I really like to represent the elegant shapes of roots, branches and wood in a graphic way. When I draw trees, I like to create dense networks of black lines on the paper. It is important to me to depict the natural shapes that I can see. But the idea of the flowing life energy inside the tree is also part of the design.

Long hikes through enchanting forests and on remote paths inspire me a lot. When I spend time in nature, I notice the relaxing ambience on the one hand and the contrasts on the other. In my opinion, the forests with their diverse vegetation symbolise the timeless beauty in nature. They form a fascinating habitat. In contrast, forests can also be places of change and transience. Everything seems to be in a cycle: the emergence, the existence and the fading of life. I would like to express my love for nature through drawings and sketches, using complex networks of black ink lines.
