Painted on canvas with streched frame. No frame.
Born 1958 in Lund. Works with oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and drawing.
Art has always been a big part of my identity. Already as a child I felt at home in the colorful world of the image and form. Here the imagination was free and the creativity flowed. I decided to become an artist when I was in my teenage years. It was not a difficult choice because I have always drawn and painted as long as I remember - daily life mixed with my own perception of things.
During the 1980s, I attended a private art school in Liège, Belgium. I have also worked as a traditional apprentice with various artists in Belgium, the Netherlands and France for 4 years.
My painting is colorful and often very rich in content. Each picture tells a detailed own story based on an inner drive to want to convey something, a thought, a feeling, an opinion. It is a way of communicating simply, a form of conversation. My contribution to the conversation is a picture that can be interpreted in many different ways.
Over the years I have had exhibitions in Sweden, Denmark, France, Germany, the Caribbean and U.S.A. For example, at The National Nordic Museum in Seattle, U.S.A. and Landskrona Museum.
