M A R E H I L S T R A
I am a poet and artist from Texel, an island of in the North of the Netherlands living in Loshult, a little village in the South of Sweden.
From 2009 - 2018 I lived in Amsterdam, studying fine arts in education and creative writing. Besides my own poetry and art I have been doing all kinds of projects to make space to share silence, stories and poetry.
Since my move to Sweden I have started to make space to express the stories of nature and with this I felt the need to create more visual poetry. Also I found a shamanic training that deepens my connections with nature, the way I created (in connection), the world around me and my intention to help others to feel more connected.
