Introduction – about me and my art
I make art. I think I always wanted to create something. First I wanted to be a window dresser, later I became a fashion designer and eventually I decided to hang another sign on my doorbell. Visual artist. Of course the time, effort, interests and experience did help me become one. It did not just happend overnight.
Most of the time i don’t know what I’m going to make or how the end result wil look like. It’s a proces you step into. Trying to create something new, something that works, that will talk to you. My art comes in different disciplines, painting, drawing, photography, sculptures, video. Sometimes a combination of these things, you can call it mixed media.
My interests are mostly processed in art works. Talking a walk and looking around, seeing things, visualize them as a director cuts a movie, images pop up constantly. How a shadow works on a pavement, the spaciousness of a collection of bushes in a park. Framing images of my surroundings can make an idea for an artwork.
As in my career as a fashion designer I love to work with different materials and combine them. The best part is if you discover new ways to handle the material and it becomes something completely different. Sometimes I try to traditionally paint but most of the time I can’t stop to investigate the image of the work by adding things that makes it possible sparkle for me. You understand, this is the long road. Trying, analyzing, thinking, contemplate and making decisions. The process in which I find myself, becomes literally the subject of my work.
