Imagine being all alone up on a hill and having the
roaring sea just below you. The sun is broiling hot and the
air is vibrating from the heat. The salty air is dry and drags
the sand along as it sweeps over the country
You are on the top of the hill with your easel. The oil colours
are ready to allow themselves to be brought together on the
canvas and form a reproduction of what you have in front of
The wind tosses the billowing grass around and you get a strong
feeling of respect for the powers that dominate the wind and
the sea so forcefully.
Being able to paint a reproduction of this experience of the
sky, the sea and the plants persistently growing in this environment,
is for me like being in heaven on earth.
This experience, with all its scents and colours, whets the
appetite of the body and the soul. Completely relaxing and peaceful.
As an artist, I let myself be inspired of all living
forms and I appreciate all things of beautiful shape and colour.
Using oil colours I paint both landscapes and modern art.
I paint for private persons and companies as well as for my
own exhibitions in South of Europe and Scandinavia, where my
basis is in Hova, Sweden.
How it started
I was born in 1944 in Falköping in the county of Skaraborg,
Sweden. Now, during the wintertime, I live in Costa Blanca,
Spain, and during the summertime in Delebäck, Hova, Sweden.
As a three-year-old, I started drawing animals. During my childhood
and adolescence I spent a lot of time in the countryside, where
you could find all the types of animals that normally exist
on a farm. This environment together with the fact that my father
was a hunter has most likely formed the basis for my interest
in painting animals and landscapes.
My father too was a very good drawer of animals and landscapes
and he therefore became my natural teacher. The art schools
I have been to, have served as a good meeting-point for me to
meet other artists of the same way of thinking.
My first exhibitions in Sweden took place in the early 70's.
After having settled down in Spain in 1981, I made contact
with artists from various countries. Together we established
a circle of artists in Altea, Spain.
The number of exhibitions has been considerate over the years
and mostly in the region of Alicante, Spain. I have made the
inspiring acquaintance of several artists from Italy, Spain
In the beginning of the 90's, I received the offer to join an
international circle of artists, who would exhibit their works
of art in different parts of Europe. I accepted the offer and
then became part of this travelling exhibition.
This travelling exhibition lasted for a year, during which
our works of art were exhibited first in Spain, then in the
region of Provence in France and Lyon and then in Brussels,
Belgium. The final exhibition took place in Paris, before returning
Painting under constant and inspiring development
Sweden and Spain fascinate and inspire me and they make excellent
contrasts with one another.
People and nature are to me an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
Gala performances, dance and music and women in full, imaginative
dress have given me much inspiration in my work. Playing children
in spontaneous situations are also very inspiring.
Thoughts about art
To be able to paint a flower or flowers is like giving life.
With my works of art, I hope to inspire those who see my paintings
to paint or to create themselves.
To give life to a blank canvas, by creating colours, shapes
and light, give rise to wonderful feelings of adventure and
