HENRIEKE I. STRECKER

Dwelling in a place, staying for long durations, absorbing essence – this is a way of life.

 

From early childhood, nature has been my teacher. I am self-taught, learning from nature. When young I watched the flora of the Black Forest, its changes, how it unfolds, how time works upon it. Each step is its own beauty.

 

I look at a wilting flower and see it become a beautiful gown. Nature knows much. Gradually I learn some of what nature knows. This learning becomes my art.
