Our patron is the painter Christoph Koch. Born in Hünxe-Bruckhausen and living in the Lippeaue, this student of Prof. Rolf Crummenauer (Academy of arts Düsseldorf) has known the project area since his childhood days. “His artistic work is predicated upon a masterful watercolour technique and an equally masterful painting in and inspired by nature.” (Drs. Guido de Werd, Director of “Museum Kurhaus Kleve”)
His paintings are realistic with abstract elements. They lend the project and the Natura2000 habitats and species a very special touch.
