Art as in my dreams
I dream my paintings. Often I wake up at night with a vague image in my head. This is the beginning of a painting which forms itself in my head while I lie awake.
I work in series and usually a painting belongs at the last series that I am working on, because that is top of mind. My series, however, are never finished and it could be that I take up an older series again.
Animals play a starring role in my work. I live in the middle of a beautiful forest. During my many walks I often see things that fits in one of the paintings in my mind: in a fallen tree I see a large insect, in a branch a large snail and in two trees that lean against each other I see a pair of giraffes making love. So I create my own imaginative, colorful animals.
In addition to my series I also create abstract/figurative painting in commission.
My paintings are regularly on display in national and international exhibitions, as in USA.
