About me

I’ve been painting all my life and I’ve always had a dream, becoming a full time artist. Watercolour is my main medium and, one of, the “love of my life” for over 30 years. The other one is my husband! This summer 2019 I took the step towards my dream, and now, I’m doing it!! I have to pinch my arm! I’m selling original paintings, Fine Art Prints, doing commissions and holding workshops. I love holding workshops and it’s a privilege to se the light in the eyes of the participants when the understand that “nothing is impossible” when it comes to painting water colour. Born, raised and still living in Östersund, the north of Sweden, I’ve spend a lot of time in the mountains and by the lake of Storsjön. It’s a natural source of inspiration for me in many of my paintings. Although I need to paint my inner landscape as well. The inner “space” and mysterious shapes. I paint everything that inspires me, often in themes. City life, nature, still-life, portraits. You can’t put me in a box! That will never happen! O yes you can. I forgot about the light and shadow box. You can use that one! I’m standing here with my arms out, thinking, “theres no end to the possibilities!! Bring it!!”
