Born in 1975. Lives and works in Helsingborg and Stockholm. My paintings tell the story of different chapters of my life; events, meetings, observations and experiences. Mostly, I use oil but I love to experiment with new techniques and materials. All the paintings are unique and they vary from abstract to realistic subjects. I take my inspiration from writers, artists and filmmakers like Dante Alighieri, Tomas Tranströmer, Francis Bacon, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Vittorio De Sica and Ingmar Bergman.
I want to interpret and communicate a specific feeling in my art which is influenced by my background in film, my writing and my studies in the subject of history, a mixture that is reflected in my art. I want the onlooker to ask questions about the art such as what happened before or after? Why is the character positioned that way? What is the person thinking about and why are they in that situation?
