I live on the west coast of Sweden in Gothenburg, the city often called the gateway to Scandinavia.
I use all different kinds of techniques, from pencil and charcoal to acrylic paints and oil although I prefer watercolor because it does not always do what the paintbrush and the painter want, but chooses its own path on the paper and tells the story which no one could have envisaged.
It is often said that a good watercolor requires a marked contrast between light and dark, warm and cold colors, soft and sharp lines, and that’s exactly what the cities of the world offer. A tram in the mist of a rainy morning, contrasts of a sunny day, a skyscraper that blocks the view, a river shrouded in mist, long shadows of people at dusk, a line of cars at the red traffic light, calm afternoons in the suburbs – the list of themes seems endless.
I love painting plein air as it enables me to feel the motif in a completely different way and register every nuance of color, light and shade as opposed to the indirect observations .
My atelier is in the old town Gothenburg whare I work and share the destiny of many artists from all over world: loneliness and insecurity but at the same time happiness and a feeling of deep contentment with the result when I draw the final line with my paintbrush and say to myself: ”This is it.”
I am represented in two galleries in Gothenberg, RiverCity Gallery and Galleri Marika Lang and in one gallery in Stockholm, Boniers News Noa Gallery. I organize watercolor courses both for beginners and advanced participants. My motto is ”Everybody can paint”
I will be more than happy to share with you the world seen through my eyes.
