I am an Interior designer and Visual Merchandiser with my own business in Sweden since 1982. In 2016 I moved to Sydney Australia with my family and got the opportunity to take a break from work and fulfill my dream of art studies. I attended short courses in clay and painting at National Art School of Sydney, followed by two years of studies at Australian Bronze Sculpture School. It was there, at the bronze foundry workshop, I found my passion for sculpture. In September 2019 we moved to Jericho in Oxford UK and I´m now continuing my education with two years of Sculpture Diploma studies at Heatherleys School of Fine Arts in London.
My favorite material is Jesmonite resin. I find it very versatile. I both make sculptures in clay and cast them and sculpt directly in Jesmonite. I also like to include different materials such aluminum mesh for texture. I think of my sculpting as a way of making interesting and unique pieces to complement interior design. Something easy to place, adding that little extra and out of the ordinary, maybe with a twist, to a space.
I make both realistic and non figurative sculptures with texture, inspired by nature, life and people and around me.
