Artist statement

I usually work very slowly. Before actually beginnig a piece, I do lots of scetching and thinking: I wait, try to visualise and find a way for the idea. This vague idea, feeling or tought must be very thoroughly developed before I make that first stroke. While I´m doing my thinking and developing, I refer to old scetches and notes. These small bits of paper function as some kind of subconscious keys. When the feeling has taken a solid enough shape, I begin working it into its final form. The theme I´ve used in almost all of my work has been loneliness. In some pieces this is stated more clearly, in others it is more subtle. In my work it is more a question of trying to convey the feeling of inconsolable loneliness than to actually illustrate lonely moments.
