About me

I was born in Lörenskog, Norway. Moved to Sweden in 1980 and has lived in Karlstad since 1982, except 1987 - 89 when I lived in New Zealand. I am a trained physiotherapist, but painting has been my full-time job since 1990. Member of Värmlands Konstnärsförbund since 2001.
My education is courses at Nansenskolen in Lillehammer and at Gerlesborgsskolan in Bohuslän, Basically, I am an autodidact.
In addition, I have been a teacher of painting in Karlstad.

I work in oil and acrylic and also make high quality digital reproductions (giclées) of some of my paintings. The inspiration comes from different places I have visited, and I tryi to recreate the reality as I have experienced it.

In my painting I try to capture the colors of light and shadow,
and I investigate how different objects affect each other.
For me, light painting is a symbolic language for ecological thinking.
