With an early love for art and nature, I remember immortalizing my surroundings on whatever canvas I could get my hands on before the age of three. I find inspiration for my abstract waterscapes and marbled creations from my travels, people, colors themselves, and mostly, nature. I’ve always felt close to nature, and it’s one of the main things that I look forward to when I travel back to my native Sweden every summer.
I work in a loose, fluid style consisting of numerous layers of media, resulting in pieces that are often described as both dreamy and captivating. Rock formations, the sky, ocean currents, and florals all play an important part in my work, albeit abstracted to allow a freer expression. For me, the process is very much about communicating energy through the combinations of colors, light, and shapes, while leaving the interpretation of that energy up to the viewer.
While mainly self-taught, I have had the pleasure of taking courses in acrylic in the US, drawing in Norway, watercolor technique in Sweden, Japanese printmaking and Bingata in Japan, as well as mixed media with various artists.
With the exception of a smaller body of work each year, my pieces are untitled, and simply assigned numbers instead. This allows a purely personal experience for each person viewing the work, untouched by the artist’s interpretation.
