I am born on Bornholm , a small Island in Denmark having landscapes that is like The Napoli Bay. I have exhibited my paintings since I was 12 years old, but then took an education as a phd in human movement working as an associate professor, phd in body-mind arts & sciences at the University of Copenhagen. I have studied Art in many places e.g. New York, Paris, London, Firenze and Rome and of course in Denmark. My preferred medium is acrylic, oil, and mixed media e.g. photodrawing, collage and classical and contemporary somatic drawing. I think that Art is about communication of life – not just as information, but as  sharing of experiences of life. My inspiration comes from many sources, always involving nature, but also all kinds of art e.g. litterature, phantasy, poetry and sacred books, music and dance and everyday life. My focus is on processes of transformation.
I work in a space intertwining everyday life with the poetic, the surrealistic, the abstract,  the meditative and the magic and mystery of life.
My preferred theme is  Presence or Entanglement as a door to perception of the invisible in the visible – as a symbol of everything touching everything.
