Artist Statement

In my art work I combine hand made paper with wax, pigment, and mixed media to create encaustic paintings, sculptures, photo based art and installations. I started to use wax and pigment in my work over twenty years ago, when few artists knew about it, and there was no literature on how to work with it. It still fascinates me and all my work incorporates wax and pigment in some form.

A native of Sweden, a large part of my childhood was spent in the forests, and among the many lakes scattered throughout the landscape. It is there that my love and concern for nature began. It is not surprising, that I use it as subject matter in my work, and that   plants, wax pigment are my foundation. I have discovered astonishing beauty by spending hours observing, collecting and immersing myself in all that nature has to offer.
