Citat; Article in Art Dealer Street (New York artnews ) Jan 8 2021
My teacher in drawing said that creativity is part of one’s character. He thought that I had a gift and believed that I had it in me. I’m mostly self-taught. I have taken classes from an educated artist in the evenings and I share a small studio with some other artists.
I can have a clear picture what to express from my thoughts and impressions from watching a movie, the news, flipping through newspapers. I also paint abstract, it start with wanting to find shades of color and shape by sketching with a brush, knife or other tools. Maybe sand, fabric in the board.
Great art has always come, and will always come, from within. It will always be based on the story the artist wants to convey. I attach great importance in the light, it gives the image a deeper feeling and makes it easier to look at the image. Humans experiences, and emotions in their stories.
