Artist’s Statement

Art gives joy, beauty, comfort and hope. The joy of painting rises the brush high near heaven. The subject is then light, which is color. It pleases eye in itself. I have painted a lot of other kind of paintings. For exsamble art works which Doctor of Philosophy Christina Bäcksbacka called: "Naivistic-symbolistic-ekspressive". I take influences from many sources , and often paint with a help of my memory. My subjects can interpret as the viewer likes. My interest of colors bring them together to my production, including black and white. I start to paint because there is a lot of things, which are difficult tell with words.
