In 2016 I started designing and publishing a free printed magazine, but after four editions it came to an abrupt end because I no longer found sufficient financial resources. In 2020 it started to itch again to share something about my sources of inspiration and interests with a larger community. Woodland stories tries to fill this void.
Because of the volatility of the internet, everything goes very fast. Time seems to go faster and faster. We will have to share relevant information more consciously. So no short news items to get a quick impression but clear, comprehensive information in which the reader makes a conscious choice to deepen. Therefore I present Woodland stories that explores our personal interests and introduces in-depth stories about contemporary visual artists, outstanding craftsmen and fascinating photographers which motivate us to find creative inspiration.
Woodland Stories contains the art of both emerging and established creators from around the world. We bring you stories from a real world in a down to earth perspective. Artists inspire others by sharing thoughts and observations. It's been called a different kind of healing. Art has its own way of inspiring others through storytelling.
It is a silent wish to acquire a work from each of these inspiring craftsmen, as in a kind of personal museum, but for now I have to put up with a collection of their splendid books.
We hope that this digital platform will bring you into contact with the work of inventive artists, innovative designers and imaginative photographers you haven't heard of before and who will motivate you to achieve your dreams and goals as they inspired us.
