“The inspiration to a new work you cannot predict where or when it comes. It can be a shadow on the bus, a face on a photo, a sentence on the radio, landscape – or it just comes to you when brushing your teeth, shouting “Let me out!”.

Welcome to my homepage and my painting universe…

I am an autodidact contemporary artist working with acrylic and mixed media.

I am born in Stockholm, Sweden, by Danish parents and moved to Copenhagen at the age of 9.

Grown up and always worked in an international environment with many nationalities, my works often show influences from many cultures.

I get my inspiration from multiple sources and impressions, being it political trends and the urge to make a statement over to contrasts and moods. Most of my works have a figurative touch, but over the years I have experimented with several isms, e.g. abstract painting, surrealism, graphic, and am always open to challenge my curiosity.

The series #ICANs are f.inst. inspired by the Russians icons and thorough studies were made in order to compose an icon with my own twist. (see under ‘#ICANS’ in the portfolio).
