Everything you see has its own story!

”I am often out in the landscape and paint to study what I see.Nature is my very best teacher.This basic studies is very important for to be able to create my inner images.Theese inner images comes to me with their own stories,accompanied by the rythm and chords of the color.They are in that way simultaneously narrative and abstract.It starts with a brushstroke on a blank piece of paper.Soon there will be a new painting.That is magical.”

”Color is my most important means of expressen.The color is like music with chords and rythms.The images I do often comes to me for my inner sight.I think that my art becomes similar to poetry and music.That is my wish.”

For me personally, creating images is a way to have time to reflect on what I see and hear about. Each image becomes like a message to myself and to others. In these days of AI, one is glad that there is a special sender. Love the idea of ​​being part of a long tradition of image creation, ever since the time of cave paintings for about 25000 years ago.
