About

I have found my own artistic expression through encounters with people, places in the world and thereby created my own memory bank. Among other things, this is where I get my inspiration. I paint what I want, based on my feelings I get in the actual creation process. It comes intuitively. The composition of colour and shape, their harmony is what guides my painting. I compose and improvise as I paint. The different parts of the painting may change places, change color, many times before I'm done. My painting is modern paired with a somewhat naive expression. My art has been given the epithet as harmonious, sensual, joyful, colourful, and sometimes spiritual (without being religious in any way). My motifs often contain women in some form, which can perhaps be traced to my studies when I did research on domestic workers in Stockholm around the 20th century och domestic workers in Africa south of Sahara around the 1980s. All these women's shared experiences of work, children, opportunities and to express themself this I carry with me in my creative. Through social anthropology, I have come close to original, honest, effective art expressions.
