My paintings often reflect the light and colors from my native country, Sweden. The range varies from the spare light of winter when colors are very subtle to the intense, long daylight of summer when colors are saturated. Color and lines are very important in the expression of my art, reflecting the minimalism of the Scandinavian culture. The subject matters repeatedly shows nature and my love for the natural world. I find the painting process with oil absorbing, as it constantly changes and the outcome is sometimes surprisingly different from my initial idea. The painting process becomes dynamic and intriguing. My paintings have recently progressed from primarily representational to mostly abstract: I find the abstraction exciting, freeing and moving.
