After many years as a teacher, I left Uppsala for a stimulating environment for my artistry.
I have been drawing as long as I can remember while watercolour painting took me several years to discover.
Watercolour fascinates me and always invites to new challenges and the opportunities are endless. Sometimes I just let the watercolour flow, other times the smallest details are very important.
Nature and old factories inspires me. Rusty objects are there as a reminder of a bygone era and gives me inspiration for new paintings. Burnt Sienna symbolizes the past and Antwerpen, the present. The meeting between these two colors has long appealed to me.
I have shown my drawings and watercolour paintings in galleries and juried exhibitions in Uppsala and Stockholm among others , but also abroad like Estaimbourg, Belgium
The combination of being a teacher and an artist resulted in a book, which is all about inspiring students to write with help of their own paintings.
