I was born in Gamla Enskede in the south of Stockholm. My mother was a teacher and father engineer. My younger sister got art education at Gerlesborg and worked as painter and illustrator.
After getting an education in Business Administration at Stockholm University I worked for one year in Tokyo and one year in San Jose, California. Then I lived some years in central Stockholm before moving to Danderyd when my son Jakob was born.
About ten years ago I stated painting, and took different art classes, full time high school class as well as summer classes and evening training courses. The local association Danderyd konsthall was started about this time and I joined when it was quite new. We don’t have a real exhibition hall yet but the association is very active and arrange shows for members, mostly in the local market.
Most of my paintings have people as an important part. Real people I know or don’t know. Maybe a photograph taken many years ago – or just recently when I see something inspiring.
