Born 1972 in Västerås, Sweden

I paint in a concrete and abstract pictorial tradition, where the spirit is permeated by artists such as Hilma af Klint, Kandinsky, the Suprematists and the Russian avant-garde. By organizing and coordinating colors, shapes and pattern constructions (often geometric and symbolic), I want through these elements and approaches to achieve decorative results but at the same time also create resistance that dissolves this. My work process consists of finding compositions among opposite conditions such as contrast, volume, space, distance, proportion and atmosphere to give each painting its specific character

Things of beuty


I get my inspiration from finding different colors, shapes and combinations of these that can create motifs and patterns that harmonize with each other to achieve decorative results.

Acrylic painting, preferably in large formats.

My paintings are the result of a work process where colours, shapes and compositions meet. By organizing, coordinating and working with opposites such as contrasts, spatiality, volume, space, distance, proportions and atmosphere, try to find the specific character of each painting.
