To paint has become a necessity for me – I experience the world around me as objects to paint, collect and rework. It gives me pleasure to catch those inner and exterior landscapes on paper, recreating the feelings and impressions for others and for myself. In my daily work in biomedical research at Karolinska Institutet I am confronted with questions and solutions requiring long and systematic work. Watercolour painting confronts me with the challenge of spontaneous decisions and forces me to focus and be present in the very moment the brush hits the paper. For me, the beauty of watercolour paintings is in the transparent medium, the power of water moving pigments and the stroke brushes, that are irreversible.
While persuing my research career I have received an education in art at a number of art schools and by attending independent courses. During the past 15 years I have specialised in watercolour painting combining my interest in science and art. This has resulted in a number of exhibitions at research institutes (e.g. at the Medical Research Council in Cambridge and Karolinska Institutet) and art galleries. In addition, my paintings have been used to illustrate books, scientific presentations and publications and are displayed at many research labs and private collections around the world.
I live in Stockholm, Sweden and work in my own studio. If you are interested in my paintings please contact me via email or phone.
