I do colourful, figurative art.
My works often have a reference into art itself and reflects on art and life itself by creating new contexts. Many of the elements I use I seek among the absolute opposites in visual arts.
Often I embed what happens around us. I tell stories - or provide the viewer a 'mirror' for self-recognition.
To create, learn and explore gives me a flow and drives my enthusiasm for visual art.
My fascination for experimenting with materials, styles and techniques is evident - and I'm excited about contrasts and humor.
I was born and raised in central Jutland. After my study in International Management (Economics & Languages) at Aarhus Business School, I moved to Germany (1992) and worked in marketing and sales in various functions. 2008 I moved to Denmark and started studying art. Soon it became obvious that doing art was far more than just a hobby and I have been working with art since 2009. Summer 2014 I moved to Switzerland.
For shorter or longer periods of time I have received tuition at 'Bjørn Ignatius Øckenholts Frederiksbergske Kunstskole', 'Kunstskolen Spektrum', 'Mads Rye' as well as at 'Kunstskolen Ignatius.dk'.
From January 2010 till summer 2013 I taught 'Art in a Fun and Funky Way' at Copenhagen International School.
Summer 2011, 2012 & 2013 I did two-days 'Creative Kids Workshop' at the private Art School Ignatius.dk for children aged 7-12.
Summer 2013 I led the Creative Summer School at Copenhagen International School.
