Word from the artist
” Through my digital and creative knowledge within graphic and multimedia design I started creating digital art and fine art photography. It actually all started with a Dinosaur... Yes, that's correct I couldn't find any cool and large artwork for my kid’s rooms, so I created an art piece with a Dino and before I really understood what was happening, I had setup a little company making art for kid’s rooms. This is off course many years ago but it has led me to where I am today.
In 2019 I was invited to join an art ceramics class in Copenhagen. (As a child I did not hear the school bell ring when I was in the ceramic workshop) so you can imagine how excited I was. Working with clay has opened my creative heart towards a new dimension I'm very grateful for this.
As you hopefully can see here on my webpage; I absolutely love what I do - and I am so grateful that The Universe has been so kind to me. Imagine being able to do what you love that's a great gift.
My childhood & life, inspirations/influences: I discovered my passion for photography and drawing at a very young age. My father had a number of Leica cameras that I was allowed to play with, my Godfather was a successful photographer and my mother was a graphic designer. My mother’s uncle was a Danish sculptor, ceramicist and painter. My late grandfather was a publisher focusing on comics and children’s illustrated books he tested so many books and illustrations on us (his grandchildren) so storytelling and looking at images have had a great impact on my life. As you can see all of these lovely people have inspired me at a very early age.
I have always been very creative and as a child my dear father told me that I should defiantly be a sculptor, but he also told me that if I could not live of it, then I could always get a job as a structural engineer and decorate ceilings in churches. I got so afraid of the ideer of me lying down on a scaffolding with my hands up in the air, that I immediately stopped working with clay... And now many years later I have taken it up again and cannot live without it at all. My dear sweet mother still have some of my clay sculptures that I made in my childhood.
My parents were full of energy and they involved me in so many interesting things. I grew up in a wonderful, creative and adventurous family and throughout my childhood I sailed in the Swedish archipelago where the light is breath taking and inspiring. I have spent every summer holiday with my family in our beautiful summerhouse where drawing, playing and building rafts and tree houses were part of my daily life. During the winter we went skiing in the French Alps where I started experimenting with my camera. As a contrast to the liberal and creative environment I enjoyed at home, I attended an international school in Copenhagen run by Catholic nuns. I have lived in many countries and I speak Danish, Swedish, English, German and French. I am dyslexic so I'm sure that you will find some spelling mistakes on my webpage sorry I'm not perfect. But I think that this little "handicap" has boosted my creative sense. PS: I made this website myself so bear with me if there are a few small mistakes, or better let me know so that I can correct them!
At the age of 21 I survived a severe accident which took years of training to recover from. It was a very hard time but also a gift, as it made me look at life in a very different way. I think that my dedication to my art is due to what has happened to me in the past, the present and to what the future holds... Sometimes life can be challenging, but I feel very privileged that I can dedicate my time in my own little creative world. So welcome to my world :-)
I am inspired by my surroundings, the inexplicable, the incomprehensible and the unsaid. I believe in love, humanity, gratitude, empathy, connectedness, nature and a higher consciousness. It gives me joy every single day to learn new things, to play with my imagination and to experiment and explore the possibilities in both shapes and colours.
My Mission is to create art that inspires people. I love to spread positive energy and joy in the room. I love my life and I have big dreams. I am guided by an inexplicable urge to create and curiosity. I am forever grateful to have been given this gift.
My hobby is my job! My kids are the greatest gift in life, they inspire me every day and help me look at the world through different eyes. I love my husband, family and friends.
I also really love sailing. I started sailing when I was 4 years old together with my father we sailed the Hobie Cat 16. Since then I have sailed together with my childhood friend Yoanna in the Hobie 16 World Championship in Huskisson, Jervis Bay, New South Wales, Australia in 2014. I have also sailed the Hobie Europeans in Lake Garda/Italy, Barcelona/Spain and Sardinia/ Italy. In 2017 I sailed in the Philippine Hobie Challenge where we hit a storm and lost all our luggage... Life can sometimes be very exciting.
I think that the sea has had a huge influence in who I am and how I work. The sea and nature fills me up with so much energy and so many ideas. I love the nature and its inhabitants - but I am very concerned about the future of our earth. I think that is why I try to make my animals in my artwork as human as possible to show my audience that they have souls too. I really enjoy creating art that inspire people. Love and compassion are some of the topics that I use in my art pieces. Each work of art tells its own story normally with a twist of humour.”
Thank you so much for showing an interest in me and my art.
