meet the artist

Ever wondered who creates all these beautiful stories? Well, let's introduce you to our sand artist, Harm van Schaik.

He started a few years ago with drawing the first scenes in sand on a piece of wood, trying to tell the story of creation in a new way. Now, after millions of views of the Sandy Tales videos, he still tells all kinds of different Bible stories.

When he’s drawing one scene, he often changes something in the picture and the whole scene is transformed on your screen to something brand new. Every time you see it, you will be amazed. And touched.
