"For me, it is the combination of colours and shapes that catch my attention and inspires me, especially the faded and chalky colors - like sun bleached driftwood, rusty metal and worn fabrics."
“I’m a self-taught artist, working from a home-based studio in Malmö, Sweden. Creativity has always been essential in my life. My artwork is about playing with the unexpected, something old, something new and at the same time with softness to create new contexts. In my paintings, I use different media, such as charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, collage and in my sculpting, I use driftwood and other interesting findings. My sculptures are mostly inspired by Wabi-Sabi philosophy, where the beauty of natural patina and aging is seen as something to appreciate and love.
I believe that art is everywhere, one just has to learn to see and appreciate it. It is just a couple of years ago that I started putting the pieces together forming sculptures. It all started with my mother passing away suddenly and unexpectedly. I was seeking inner peace and found sculpting was meditative and healing. It also made me decide that life is too short not to do what I love the most: art!
Since then I have been participating in various exhibitions. I have also been selected for a few juried venues as well. I am most proud of having participated in the most prominent Swedish yearly exhibition at Liljevalchs in Stockholm.”
