Happy New Year!

Wishing you all the best for year 2015 with this pic taken one night almost two years ago when the Northern Lights together with the moon and the stars illuminated the landscape. Hope your year will be filled with magic, peace and love!

Season's Greetings

Some months have passed since the last status update, sorry for that. Spent a great summer at ancient and medieval markets, met wonderful people and got inspired to create new work to share with you next summer. So a buzy autumn turned in to a buzy end of the year... 
We up north in Finland are enjoying a white xmas this year ;o) Sending you all Season's Greetings. Take care!
