proud frisian dutch. born in canada.
music, art, nature, history, and fantasy
metal pagan folk music, gouache/traditional, canada, and the history of our ancestors: northern europeans.
nature is a part of us, we are a part of nature, we are the culmination of our ancestors. music is art, to me it is intangible and like things i adore i am unable to articulate what it is about it that beguiles me so. fantasy is not only an escape but a wish, the worlds we create are brushstrokes on the canvas of dreams that have yet to come true. and so is art, a thought, a dream, what we wish and our ability to make it so as best we can with the tools we are given.
the north is a power, of flora and fauna we know and love. the caribou, the bear, the weasel. conifers and the canadian shield.
