I have always been quite fascinated by the detail in nature. I think it all started when I was assigned my first pair of glasses. I had no idea that my eyesight was any different from the other kids in school. I remember the first day wearing my new spectacles in a classroom with ancient trees growing just outside the window. I could not believe what I was seeing. These trees turned out not to be just a green, bushy blur but rather a very complex structure consisting of leaves and branches. I was amazed!
Fast forward, if you would ask me when did I first start to express this madness on paper, I must say that it only started to came out while I was in uni. One of the tasks was to visualize the sky/air. I made a massive graphic drawing of microscopic circles. Since then, I can't seem to stop, I find this process very meditative, calming and even healing.
