Conservation

"We are living in such a dominant world, that we tend to forget, that the human species does not own this precious planet. There are so many wonders around which deserve to be appreciated.  This is where my love for wildlife comes into play. By painting it, I want to raise awareness of the beauty of life surrounding us, that is worth being protected.  "

Since I am just at the beginning of my career, my list of conservation projects is not yet that long, but I am doing my best to expand it!

I have already participated twice in the annual Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition in London (50% of the sale goes to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation). Moreover, I am part of a small group of German artists who just launched a small foundation for conservation purposes.  Meanwhile, I am supporting the Kayamoja Art Connects Trust in Namibia and the Born Free Foundation with art.
