My paintings are full of soul and attitude. I love mixing the abstract with the female body - sometimes very abstract and sometimes in manga style. My art is always aesthetic in its expression and is characterized by fine sharp lines in contrast with light brush strokes and dripping effects with an effusive spontaneity . My paintings are both in oil and acrylic colors. My creative backgrund originates in the nordic world of fashion and I tend to be inspired by new trends. But, compared to fashion my paintings may be appreciated over a long period.
Biography: The fashion inspiration is my focus because of my degree in Fashion Design and Fashion Illustration from Copenhagen Fashion and Design School. I also have a Masters Degree in Business (Design & Communication) from Copenhagen Business School. I have been painting all my life and my educational background combined with my recent job as a communications consultant have now given me the inspiration to pursue my painting full time.
