The Great-Grandmothers-Inspiration: 
As I was going through old family-pictures, I looked for a different kind of „spirit-catching“ hoping to find some resemblance with my own face. I chose my great-grandmothers on both sides of the family. They are  important „pieces“ to this personal puzzle that is slowly coming together. These somehow archetypical great-grandmothers show me the way:  My roots have always been kinda blurry, which is maybe interesting and a rich source for my art, but it also caused me some trouble in finding „my kind“ …. But then ; eventually, the ugly duckling found the other swans too…didn´t it ?
The picture of Maria ( Claessens) Breuers was taken in the beginning of the 20th century in Venlo, Netherlands. The picture of Caroline Tokaya was made in Java.

  1. slowly the pieces come together, more peace is achieved by comprehension towards your karmic roots. means to know why you are here. well, we like to take it personal. But is it not that we are all daughters and sons of the sacred masculine and feminine? The children of God.
    love you lots
    love and light
