I like paintings with a lot of texture
because I think it makes them more vivid
and interesting to look at. In my work I
experiment with putty and layers of color
to create the specific surface that I
want. Acrylic paint that has a short
drying time is what I use most frequently
in the layering process.
When it comes to tools, I use whatever
works best to achieve the expression I am
aiming for. I use everything from pieces
of cloth, plastics, spatulas, brushes,
sponges and my hands. I almost always
paint on deep gallery canvases as I think
they do particularly well as decor.
My creation process is very intuitive.
Although I often decide on a motif or
combination of colors in advance, I never
know exactly how the results will be.
I mainly paint abstract art, or semi-abstract works with silhouettes. My
most common motifs are women, mainly women's bodies. The reason why this has
become one of my main motifs is probably because I have been surrounded by
many strong women during my childhood. I am also very proud to be a woman
and believe in our strength, and I think that the female body is beautiful

myself, although my children often keep me company. My thoughts when I am in
front of the canvas are only about color, texture and shape and on what I am
