gratus [lat.] : grateful, thankful
I am happy to share with you recent images and my style of art.
Art for me is comparable with love and a way of freedom and hope.
It is an expression of humankind and shows some truth about the beauty and fright of our existence.
And it is, to me, always an opportunity to learn something about myself.
You may order most of my images as prints, whereby two principles are very important to me:
I would be very happy if the images not only please you, but touch you. And thereby a connection between us emerges…

The wooden frames that you can get with a limited edition print are made of wood which is FSC certified.
This contributes to a more environmentally conscious use of one of the world’s most important natural resources. Although wood grows back, it needs a minimum of favourable conditions. By preferring wooden frames that bear the FSC label, you actively support the responsible use of this raw material.
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council, a non-governmental organisation founded in 1993 in Toronto, Canada and now operating worldwide. Its primary objective is to combat the environmentally harmful exploitation of forests. In accordance with a far-reaching catalogue of principles, the organisation monitors the functioning of forestry operations and issues certificates to those who commit themselves to sustainable forest use.
In order to live up to this ideal, it needs not only responsible manufacturers, but also environmentally conscious consumers. With an FSC certified wood image frame, you make a direct, not to be underestimated, contribution to the conservation not only of the natural habitat of many animals, but also of our own.
This artwork is available as a limited edition (‘artist edition’)
As you probably know, three principles are very important to me:
– We should support the weaker ones wherever possible. That’s why at least 50% of my profit will be donated to charities.
– Generally, my images are free of charge. You might download each image and can use it according to the creative commons license ‘by-nc-sa‘.
– Everyone gives what he or she can. You decide for yourself what the print is worth to you (you name the price).
