Start > ENGLISH > about me

I am a visual artist living in Luleå and I work with painting, graphics, enamel and glass. I am always open to new techniques and challenges…


My art wants to convey happiness and well-being with a sprinkle of seriousness.

I also want to live my life just like that.


Really, everything is about feeling well.

It is fun to create.

My art is immediate and wants to spread joy.

My art is depictive but not realistic.

My pictures are telling but sparse in details.

I want to create understandable art.

I create in creative silence.

I have thought many thoughts whilst creating.

My art shows weakness, compassion and love in everyday situations.

I want to create with careless particularity.
