I am an artist and illustrator utilizing traditional media such as watercolour, pencil and paper to create paintings typically oriented around fantasy and mythological themes.
Many of my ideas come from literature, fact and fiction, but just as often they come from the natural world around us. It can be dramatic vistas like in the picture from Stora Sjöfallet here to the left, but also seeing something new in for example a very normal-looking tree you pass by every day, perhaps a play of light, or a combination of colour that leads to an idea taking shape.
I find it interesting in my art to wander around and look for middle-grounds and bridges in the twilight realm between what may at first seem to be opposites, like abstract versus figurative, old versus modern or mundane versus fantastic. In my opinion, that is where it gets the most interesting and where new and unfamiliar things can emerge.
