Creativity has always been a huge part of my life. When I was 15 I drew my first portrait, and ever since, I have been fascinated by the wide possibilities of creating my own pictures. I started drawing a lot of realistic drawings with graphite, mostly portraits but also objects I saw around me. Once I got a little older I started trying out other techniques and materials. Today I mostly work with oil paint.

For me, painting is a form of happiness. If I don’t work it through with details all the way I like to combine the abstract and the figurative, the spontaneous and the carefully planned. It’s very important to me to get to express what is on my mind just at the moment or larger topics that have been there for longer periods of time.

I’m very interested in people and their behaviour in different contexts in relation to both society and nature. Our relationship to mother earth, each other, everyday life and just life in general. I take inspiration from everything that exists and happens around us. I’m very passionate about the natural, equality, justice and happiness, therefor put a lot of focus on these topics in my paintings and hope that it can be an eye opener for a soul or two or even better a hundred.

Frequently occurring motives in my paintings are hands and feet, and above all the ocean and it’s wonders. I use a lot of metaphors and symbols to express my thoughts but try to keep them open for interpretations. To reflect myself in my work I like to use very bright colors with a playful vibe to it.
