I have been sketching and painting for as long as I can remember. Early on, I found out that after taking longer breaks from painting my skills had naturally evolved. This I found to be very peculiar, since I’m a self-taught painter. However, I welcomed it of course. In 2010, I decided to become more serious about my art, and it was around this time I began to paint jungle paintings and experiment with abstract painting.  

All my paintings, since 2010, are made on cotton canvases using exclusively acrylic paint. This is due to the quicker drying process in comparison to oil paint, and allows me to paint multiple layers without having to wait several days for it to dry. I also add a layer of gloss varnish to some of my paintings, to give a bit of an extra shine.

All my artwork is originally inspired from images, colour combinations, memories, feelings, thoughts, other artist’s works and social media. Sometimes, before I proceed to a new project, I seek inspiration among all my images on my phone or on the Internet to “build” the motive in my head. There are times, especially with my jungle paintings, where I quickly sketch the motive on a piece of paper before I progress to the canvas. I also have a habit of working on one piece at a time.

The characteristics in all my paintings is the combination of bright, warm, intensive colours, which comes naturally in my jungle paintings, but needs some extra work and thought into the abstract artwork. For my jungle art I mainly use brushes in various sizes and a combination of brushes and spatulas for my abstract work. Also, regarding my abstract art, I always keep trying different styles and motives in order to “push” and surprise myself artistically. I always strive to make something unique, appealing, interesting, shocking and at the same time beautiful.

My jungle artwork has also evolved to become more detailed and now also to always include a little frog, hiding somewhere in the painting. This little frog has actually become a bit like a signature stamp. I intentionally started to add the frog after numerous customers began to ask and look for it and after a buyer nicely asked me if I could add a little frog in one of the paintings he had purchased.   

I need to feel motivated and inspired to make artwork. If the mood is not right, then I simply don’t paint. For some of my best abstract work I didn’t originally have a plan for the end result and instead I just went with the flow, so to speak. That is, I chose colours and painted shapes, figures, lines etc. depending on my inspiration, thoughts and feelings in that very moment. Working with abstract art can be very liberating and fun, but also challenging. That is why I also enjoy the process of painting the jungle paintings. Here I have to be more focused, have a plan and utilize a more detailed painting style. I spend a lot of time deciding different shades of green for the plants and trees and what insects and animals to apply.

I have my art atelier situated in the corner of our living room. It has been comfortably designed in such a way that I can sit down anytime and immediately continue working on my present art project.
