I am born at a small island, Bornholm, Denmark and now live and work in Louisiana , north of Copenhagen.
I am autodidact as a painter, but find my inspiration in my living close to the Sea and the land.
I think of contemporary art as ways of communicating experiences of significance - and I see significance as an intertwining of many existential dimensions from physical, to psychological, social and cosmic. I think of art "as a voice of beauty and freedom rooted in awareness of radical aliveness".
I am especially inspired from movement, nature, music, poetry, myth, and life. My art is a cantillation of the living now and of the creative dimension in every living now.
