In Swedish

Welcome to my webbsite!

I live in Genarp in southern Sweden.

Art has always been a great interest in my life.  For a long time I followed two tracks in the artistic process: one in painting and another in photography. For the past ten years, I have combined the two tracks into my personal take on mixed media technique.  It is mainly collage in combination with painting. My artworks are made up of multiple layers where for example color blocks,  and different structure building materials are mixed with paintings, texts, photos, or drawings. Some parts of the image surface are diffuse and others are more clear. A silhouette can work as focal point.

 I often focus on a subject or theme. I am interested in exploring opposites and contrasts where I seek the tension between for example light and dark, motion and tranquility, tangible and abstract. I also like to search for tension between patterns och structures in the artwork surface.

I find inspiration everywhere. Mainly in nature, music and in interactions with people.

In my garage gallery I show my own art and also invite other regional artists to showcase their artworks.
