I had the fortune to visit the Kiskunság National Park in Hungary for two days guided by my good friend and fellow artist Szabolcs Kokay. An impressive steppe like environment with a rich bird life. Thank you so much Szabi!
I`m just back from a memorable week in the Slovenian mountainous forests taking part in a project organised by the University Ljubljiana LifeWolfAlps. eu and Artists for Nature foundation. I wanted to thank in particular Ana Pšeničnik , Meta Mavec and Ysbrand Browers for the invitation. I was fortunate to work in the field with inspirational artists like Klarisa Sipos from Slovenia, Szabolcs Kokay from Hungary, Tim Wootton from Scottland, Elwin van der Kolk from Holland, and Federico Gemma from Italy , Thank you all for your companionship and friendship! It was an unforgetable experience!
