HELLO WORLD!

I love nature.

I live creative processes.

I learn the art of pure being

 

– from nature.

My name is Annica.

 

I am a multidisciplinary artist. [visual art | design | writing | photography | sculpture | illustration | music… ]

 

With my ‘Art of Nature’ creations I want to invite & inspire you to follow your own path: the path deep into the infinite silence within yourself. There, and only there, you will find EVERYTHING you have ever looked for (in the outside world).

 

All my artwork is based on natural & pure materials for example clay, wood, metal, plant parts and food. Also it’s created from (what I call) a ‘natural state of being’. In this kind of empty space there is no me & you, no limitation, no form, no judgment or knowledge, beliefs …or even time… From this ‘nothing’ arises everything – prosperously & effortless.

 

Nature includes new begin, growth, development, creativity, change, transience, abundance, transformation and more. So, it acts as a mirror of our own life process, cause we are nature. In a natural way plants, trees or animals etc. talk to me, and if I just observe intuitively and listen carefully, they tell me a lot about this life on earth … and about the next step in my ART OF NATURE – projects.

For me, life is a natural process full of impressions, art is an expression of this pure process.

 

I hope you enjoy discovering the creations & inspirations you will find on this site. Have fun & stay healthy.

 

Annica
