Artist Statement

 

I am a daydreamer. This is what I do and what I have always done. I am a nostalgic; I love thinking about dreams of my past, treading on slippery stones, caressed by imaginary waves, life sauntering towards me with its quiet passion. These two ”life-delusions” combined drives me into a never-ending, introspective, spiral of myself and a world of backdrops and holograms. 

Listening to people watching my paintings tells me that I am not alone, climbing those clouds, finding them solid and far more real than any earthly thing.

 

I have studied art, literature, the Swedish language and history. I wanted to become a librarian but changed path and eventually qualified as a garden constructor. I worked a few years at a nursery, pruning trees. I loved this but I also loved painting and as my annual exhibitions were much appreciated, I left the trees to focus on my art.

Innan jag började måla på heltid, arbetade jag med att odla träd på en plantskola. Det var ett underbart men ensamt jobb. Oräkneliga stammar och kronor i långa rader, oräkneliga ljudböcker i lurarna. Jag formade träd och dagdrömde. Samtidigt som ingenting hände, hände allt och gränsen mellan fantasi och verklighet kändes flytande, på ett nästan skamligt vis. Tiden på plantskolan, min barndom, min tonårstid, mitt måleri, ett virrvarr av dimmiga dagdrömmar och parallella verkligheter.
