I was born in Vienna in 1956. After working as a heating technician, I am now a musician and organic farmer. I have worked mainly with wood for fifteen years. I design wooden animals and puzzles with no template, just following the wood grain. I cut the untreated domestic wood with a scroll saw, round and polish the work in several phases. Then I paint the animals with watercolours, which I fix using organic toy varnish.
Living in a natural environment is very important for me. Each puzzle is one of a kind and suitable for children, usable both as a toy and for decoration.
