Biography

Born in Odense, Denmark. Lives and works in Denmark.

Back in my teens the reading of cartoons was probably the inspiration to the universe that now shows in my work.

The paintings are kind of surreal / lowbrow – with a slight touch of humor and satire - often related to modern society and human psychology .

Quirky characters often dominates the symbolic paintings, where they act as a kind of storytellers.

Over the last couple of years the focus has been related to allow the brush strokes to bring motion and vividness into the painting - with the aim that the painting has an energi by its own - and not only because of what it depicts.

 

Participated in various exhibitions and art shows in Europe and United States.
