Abstract Impressionist / Expressionist
Born in Sweden - in the USA 2001- 2018. Now living in Queretaro, Mexico

I create images using my life experiences, often mingled with my present inner feelings and a kind of Scandinavian simplicity of design.
The title is placed beneath the image to let the words interact with the design above – the viewer’s brain then produces the full picture.

How long does it take me to make one of my pieces? A lifetime – all my experiences have shaped the way I create. In the 32 years since I started to paint, I have heard comments on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean from people finding traces of long gone masters in my art. That my work looks like or reminds people of Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Jackson Pollock etc. While it is flattering to receive these comments, I would like to point out that I have never studied these artists’ ways of expressions. In fact, I have never attended an art class nor studied art history. I did attend a drawing class briefly, to get the hang of how to draw the human body with correct proportions etc, but the class bored me and I left it….

Looking back at my art, I realize that many of the individual pieces are time documents of my where-
abouts in life. This is the way I paint. Each piece is original. And just like my life, it never gets boring...
