In 2016, I started creating and publishing a free printed magazine, but after four editions in two years it came to an abrupt end because I no longer found sufficient financial resources. In 2020, during the COVID-19 lockdown, it started to itch again to share something about our sources of inspiration and interests with a larger community.
Woodland Stories tries to fill this void.
Woodland Stories explores our personal interests and introduces in-depth stories about contemporary visual artists, illustrators, outstanding craftsmen and fascinating photographers which motivate us to find creative inspiration. Clear, comprehensive information in which the reader makes a conscious choice to deepen. It contains the art of both emerging and established creators from around the world.
Woodland Studio brings you stories from a real world in a down to earth perspective. It's a way of inspiring others through storytelling. The purpose of our stories is to introduce a wider audience to these inventive, innovative and imaginative people you may not have heard of and who may motivate you to achieve your dreams and goals as they inspired us.
We hope you'll keep reading and find your own inspiration which will very likely carve out your own path to creativity — even when the tanks feel like they might be running a bit dry.
Although it's a silent wish to open a gallery with art works of these inspiring creatives — some kind of Woodland Museum or ‘Rooms of Wonders’ — we have to put up with a collection of their splendid books.
