I grew up in an artistic family, literally with a lump of clay in one hand and colors in the other. For the same reason I describe myself as a self-taught word and image maker.
Creativity has always been a big part of my life, and most of my life I've dealt with creativity on several different levels, but the actual image development didn't really take off until the beginning of 2019.
Today, I use my creativity as a channel for intuitive impressions and expressions, thoughts, feelings, and moods. This hasn't always been the case. In the past, I was very insecure and self-critical. Today, I experience a comfort and sharpness on the expression that will appear in words or image format.
I’ve always been fascinated by collages, their expressions and depths, and I primarily work with my creative expression in paper collage, but I also spend a lot of time diving into other experimental expressions, based on different working methods, and am fascinated time by time by the abstract and organic expressions that arise when the materials themselves are allowed to work without my actual interference. Of such experiments, e.g. mention gold leaf and etching as well as diverse working methods with acrylic paints, alcohol ink processes and so on.
When I’m not creating Artmoney, I work with collages in larger formats on paper, canvas, wooden icons and boxes etc.
