The Witch is Dead! by Sybille Sterk

Welcome to the alternative, dark version of Oz, where the witch is well and truly dead (although, personally, I think that’s a shame), where the Tin Man has been turned into scrap metal and the Lion into barbecue. ;-)

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
