About

I'm based in Umeå, Northern Sweden. 


My arts practice is rooted in observational painting. Painting- including its' illusionary potential, its history and its physical qualities- are central, whether I'm working on flat surfaces or in more sculptural work.


I often try to open up the inherently contemplative and solitary process of painting by adding jokes, optical illusions or other tricks that can entertain or fascinate as part of a genuine attempt to break down barriers and welcome others in. Currently one of my investigations is to see what happens when paintings float on mirrors and glass panels - if I can shift them to exist somewhere closer to the viewer. 


Please get in touch for a studio visit or to enquire about current projects, availability of work, private or public commissions. I look forward to hearing from you!
