Artist Statement

The more I get to know about art, the more I realise I don’t know. I meet the canvas with an open mind and faithfulness to the inspiration of the moment. At times, I tap into direct flow and have clarity on the work ahead of me. At others, I simply have to stay curious, until the moment of clarity reveals itself. Rarely do I know the outcome, and that’s the most exciting thing about it.

For as long as I can remember, my work has found resolution in movement of the female body. She can be moving or standing still, but there always seems to be a feeling of processing and transformation. I have an ongoing interest in women’s liberation, which I continuously find inspirational and have an urge to pass on through visual art.

In my more recent work, there’s been more humour and boldness. A combination of the immediate beauty and the humorous, quirky aspects of being a person in a female body. A result from a period of time growing up and into my own body and exploring the power it contains along with a cheering crowd of a strong sisterhood. Unique little details and an urge to pass on the things one only sees in person that ought to be shared with viewers. A personal transformation has found its way through the brushes onto the canvas in layer after layer, allowing the stories in them to lightly pass on a deep process.

My art has the purpose of bringing people together in a space where all forces fall down and the natural open mind and compassion comes forward, allowing connection to flourish. The intention with my art is to lead the viewer from reflection into transformation, regardless of the stage they’re at.

Different media allows expression of different ideas and stories. Lately, a mix of oil paints, charcoal and pencils has been more present, layered on one another, giving depth and life. The figures are the center of the motif, usually in abstract surroundings, backing up the nature or the story passed on.
