  My interest in drawing and painting has followed me through life and has given me great satisfaction and joy.
In the autumn 2012 I retired from work and now I can dedicate myself to painting as much as I want.
I live in the beautiful countryside of Sweden surrounded by forests, the Baltic Sea, lakes and meadow lands.
I have attended courses in drawing and painting and have tested several technics throughout the years. Still -  the transparency of the watercolours has become my passion and I am mainly inspired by blades of grass, flowers, trees and birds.
Through working with a gentle touch of the brush and letting the water and the colours find their own kind of life I am trying to catch the inner spirit of the motive.
