I was born on a farm in the countryside near Silkeborg, Denmark, the youngest of four children. My childhood was under the spell of colors that caught my eyes and soul during the many hours of labor in the fields. Watching the sun playing with the clouds, raindrops glinting on leaves, the warm bodies of the cows during milking, partly formed my natural talent as an artist.
Creating is a desire from within, something I settle with Heaven and Earth.
My visions evolve from the turmoil of events and emotions I encounter on my way through life. Like a symbiosis of organic cells interacting with mine, tales of the past, the present and the future arise. I cannot define or analyze my world of art, since I do not understand it completely myself! I am a house of glass for others to see through to another level.
The colors are my lovers, the sun my happiness, the moon my secret. Sometimes in life you lie in the darkness, dreaming about light. Other times the light is so strong that you prefer darkness.
Creating is my lifelong love affair. I hope you can sense the spell too, in your own way, while watching my visions transferred to reality.
