I am a Swedish artist painter living in Holmsund outside Umea. My medium is oil, acrylic, video, mix media. My inspiration comes from different angles currently Japanese aesthetic wabi that strives for simplicity, tightness of nature and things beauty or the emptinesss fantastic content The result is a series of abstract paintings where the shape and color can grow in the room.
