"My inspiration is beauty, movement, and interaction between body, soul, and spirit and my artworks often end up in different directions between inner and outer landscapes or the connection of the wholeness. Like Edward Hopper says: "If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint."

“Creativity has always been a part of my life and has given me a lot of energy. I also love hiking, being out in nature and seeing creation with a different language and colors for each season.

Ten years ago, I started learning oil painting, but something was missing until I discovered to paint intuitively. To play with colors in an intuitive universe has given me a color pleasure journey as it has evolved into an exciting joy where I play with colors until I discover something that will emerge on the canvas.

I love to see a blank canvas and to go on a journey to discover what the finished artwork is each time. It always surprises me what the new images tell me during the process. Painting is still a learning process in my inner world, and it reminds me of the wholeness and how everything in life is connected. Meditation, gratitude, and reflection often lead to new movements in my inner landscape.

My hope and desire with art are to expand boundaries, open up for reflections and expand horizons, see the world from other angles and remind someone of the vast universe we live in and all the love given to us both in the inner and outer landscape. Some of my works are only for relaxing, joy, inner peace, or to bring awareness of all the love and light we don’t see but as surrounds us all the time."
