An ode to life itself.

Sometimes, music reminds us of what we really are. That we're only stardust from billions of years ago. Mortal and small. That the majesty of life will go on, with or without us.
I want to dedicate this feature to Nightwish's "The greatest show on earth". From the birth of our planet until mankind appeared. I picked out a few pictures that bring over this vibe of infinity. Enjoy viewing! =)

“We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara.
Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here.
We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?”

(Richard Dawkins)

Welcome, visitor!

I'm a self-taught hobby fine-artist from Germany.

Creativity is my way to escape every-day life and let all the sorrow and pressure fade away for a few moments, a way to hide in my own little refuge.

With my art I try to create unique, magical pieces. Refuges for you to lose yourself in or where you can hide when you need it. All you need is to take the ride into my enchanted worlds.

My specialities are pencil portraits and acrylic paintings.
A side passion of mine is photography.
I also do have a pronounced fondness for everything bombastic, squiggly and detailed.

Please also visit my literature account:

If you have any questions, feel free to note or email me :)

(Please forgive the shitty layout, dA ruined my perfectly designed profile.)




"Fine art is the most powerful tool for impacting a culture that I can think of. Unlike virtually all other media including film, television, books, and music, fine art is not limited by the element of time. For example, it takes about eight hours to read the average book, a movie lasts two hours or less, and a song is over in mere minutes - but a painting invades the most private of human spaces, the home, and becomes a part of that person's life for the rest of their time on the planet. And while other reproduced forms of created works often end up on a shelf or in a music cabinet, a painting or print is enshrined, front and center within the home. It surrounds the activities that take place in the home, creates the background visuals for the rituals of daily living.

In the midst of continuous bombardment from the loud and constantly in motion imagery of our media culture, a painting is a still and silent messenger in the home - as compelling as a gentle whisper in a room full of shouting people. Further, paintings are time travelers, often handed down generation after generation long past the lifespan of the artist or the original owner."

(Thomas Kinkade)



"A refuge, or a sanctuary...
is a word which here means a small, safe place in a troubling world.
Like an oasis in a vast desert or an island in a stormy sea."


(Taken from Lemony Snicket's "Series of Unfortunate Events")




..."If you close your eyes, you can see the music". (Flashdance)
