I was born in 1952, raised near Copenhagen. I am educated as a teacher and worked for 8 years as a teacher. For the past 30 years I have worked with translation of computer software and related IT materials. I now enjoy working full time as a visual artist.

Throughout the years, I have drawn, painted and been interested in producing art and images. Previously it was mostly using ink and watercolor with a focus on illustrations in books and newspapers, but now I paint mostly with acrylic and oil on canvas.

The inspiration and motifs for the paintings come from the many travels around the world, from nature and from exciting architecture. I am very interested in refining and trying out new techniques. My paintings are mostly figuratively abstract with a bit of surrealism. The paintings are usually kept in clear and bright colors, but I also experiment with the use of sponges, cloths and other techniques that can give other interesting expressions.

I am happy to receive assignments where the color choice, size and theme suits your specific wishes and circumstances. 

I am a member of Gulddysseg√•rd and Artportable.
