My immediate environment is what inspires me, ranging from the people, culture, objects, thoughts and especially materials that I come in contact with. I have a close relationship to materials I find in nature that can be used or recycled. I often work in layers, building a texture and “feeling” into the work, letting the material influence the result, not so much the original idea.
Born in South Africa in 1971, I moved to Sweden in 2001 and completed my education in painting, drawing, graphical printing and pottery at Folks Universitetet in Stockholm. In 2004 I moved to Kenya where I developed my techniques of building up collages from various materials like, pigments, sand, textile, hand made paper, rusted metal sheets, various animal dung etc.
In 2005 I moved back to Sweden where I continued working and exhibiting in various solo and group exhibitions in Africa and Europe.
