ABOUT

I’m a Swedish artist with oil as a pre­ferred me­di­um, closely fol­lowed by char­coal. The hu­man form, be it a fig­ure or a face, is end­lessly in­triguing and chal­len­ging to me, so that’s what I choose to paint. Com­pos­i­tion and paint­erly rhythm is some­thing I’m con­stantly think­ing about, even when I’m not in front of the easel. 

I’ve had a few solo ex­hib­i­tions and jur­ied shows in Sweden since I star­ted show­ing my paint­ings in 2012. Last year I made it to the fi­nal round of the BP Por­trait Award at Na­tion­al Por­trait Gal­lery in Lon­don, some­thing you can hear me talk about in Swedish Pub­lic Ra­dio

There’s an in­tim­ate re­la­tion­ship between oil and can­vas that no oth­er me­di­um can rival, so I try to at­tack my paint­ings in an hon­est and in­tu­it­ive man­ner. I’m also cap­tiv­ated by the tact­ile qual­ity of oil paint, which is why I en­joy paint­ing in lay­ers with dif­fer­ent tex­tures and ab­stract shapes that come to­geth­er from a dis­tance when all the pieces are in place. 

If you’re in­ter­ested in pur­chas­ing or com­mis­sion­ing a paint­ing, please con­tact me and let me get back to you. You can also find more in­form­a­tion on my Swedish web­site be­stäl­la porträttmål­ning.
