I was born on the 3rd of May in Trelleborg on the south coast of Sweden. I hung out with guys for a while, before realizing I liked women better. As partners, I mean. I have a dog called Bosse, cats called Linus and Findus, and the name of my beloved is Maria.
I started using oilpastels for my art around 2013. As it were, I sold the very first painting I did, which of course spurred me on. Later I added color pencils to my repetoir, but I never use anything that requires paint brushes. As beautiful as they are, I feel they create unwanted distance.
My paintings seem simple, and in many ways they are. I belive there is charm in simplicity, and I belive it lets people focus on the subtle qualities of the characters. I enjoy the challenge of giving them all personalities and moods by using as few unnecessary details as possible. And while it might seem like a paradox, that’s what makes them complex.
Most of all I really enjoy painting. I’m not one who paints what she feels, rather I paint what I need. In most cases, that’s joy. And if my paintings bring you joy too, I’m happy.
