I am a curious and restless person who has lived in different countries, worked in the wider creative field, ran my own business and had some stints in academia since I graduated my MFA from Glasgow School of Art. I 'm now based in my birth town Umeå in the north of Sweden and back to painting as my main preoccupation. Along with my studio practice, I am sometimes persuaded to take on creative strategy work, design projects and guest lecturing. I also do the odd portrait commission, which I enjoy.
There are so many aspects to painting that gets me: its' illusionary potential, its rich history, its physical qualities and what seems endless possibilities. It is impossible to fully master all aspects of painting in a lifetime - and trying never leaves me bored. My paintings spread across glass, mirror and 3-dimensional objects . I deal with a wide range of subject matter from exploring pure visual rhythm to looking at perception, representation, otherness, solitude and agency. In the past I've based a lot of work around the female body- it’s image and the associated attributes of femininity. Recently I've taken an interest in masculinity, with male beauty deconstructed and translated through the female gaze.
