During my walks in the forest I was struck by the grazing Scottish Highlanders with their long spiral horns. Their appearance in slow motion, with a certain rhythm inspired me for a sculpture.

Here my first sculpture was born, ‘Highlander’. This was the start of Ode to the Wilderness, a concept that I established for my art projects. With Ode to the Wilderness I want to express my wonder and love for nature and her animals.
