Explore. Experiment. Play. That is how I work. I am too restless and curious to keep with one theme and style. Ideas are feeding new ideas and bring me on a new path. Constantly. I love mixing materials and techniques; painting and stitching, printmaking and sewing, clay and embroidery. Why not?
My aim is to only use repurposed and environmentally friendly art materials. I have collected a rather large number of stretched canvases, all different sizes, from op-shops, that I sand back and reuse. Often in the sanding process I overdo it and create holes in the canvas. This has become a feature in my latest abstract paintings.
I am an Arctic Swedish/ Australian artist with an art studio on a Macleay Island beach in Queensland. It's a long way from the forests and lakes of the Arctic, the midnight sun, and the northern lights.
I am creating simply because I need to and when I do, everything feels right and purposeful. I wish to make others feel something when they look at or have my art in their space. I hope they feel good, remember a time, person, or place, feel hope, or feel inspired. Just as I do.
I collect bread
bag clips and one day
I'll make an exciting piece
of art with them all. I'll
let you know when.
In the mean time,
send me yours.
