I have been painting and drawing since I was a child. About twenty years ago I started taking this interest more seriously by regularly every year attending art and painting courses, primarily at the Gerlesborg School of Fine Art but also privately for professional artists. Some years ago I discovered Vedic Art© and attended a couple of their courses at Öland.

My motives have varied over time and depending on the theme of the courses I have attended and whereabout I have been geographically. Nowadays, or when I am not attending courses, I paint more freely, out of my own inspiration or lust for creation.

I paint mostly in oil on canvas and recently also with oil pastel crayons, but more and more often in acrylic on canvas or mdf.

More information about me: I was born 1962 in the very north of Sweden, grew up in the very south of Sweden and moved to Stockholm in 1992 where I still live. I have a Bachelor of Economics and Business Administration and I have been working in a few different industries throughout my career, such as telecom, finance and energy. I am still working there, but want to paint more and more…

I usually start with an idea of something. Then the painting process itself takes over and turns it into something similar or totally different. We cooperate, the process and I. I can stop and change direction or agree to follow. It also runs through my head and through my heart in turns. Both equally important in different phases.
