The Sculptor

I have always been fascinated by people; their reactions, movements and facial expressions. In town I can suddenly find myself thoroughly engrossed - observing the fruit vendor in the square, the old man who gathers empty cans from the dustbins or a teenage couple infatuated with each other. It is normal everyday people and situations that gives me inspiration for my art.

Even though I make sculptures in different materials I usually start the creative process in clay. Clay is a fantastic medium. It allows me to add and to remove, over and over again until I reach the expression I desire. It is a satisfying process.

I live in Lund, in the south of Sweden, with my husband and our three children. I studied art at Lund's Art School and the Northwest Scania's College in the nineties and I have sculptured since. Since then I have continuously supplemented my studies with various art courses including model studies, portraits and various techniques.
