draw and paint has always been an important part of my life. I
learned ceramics at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Craft Between
1968-72, thereby I also got the possibility to work 3-dimensionally.
Between 1972-86, I mainly did stoneware and glass in my workshop
in Birkerød, Denmark. From 1986, I started to paint full
time. I took part in group exhibitions, held a separate exhibition
in the Gammelstrand Gallery and in a number of art associations
and had a permanent exhibition in Rørholmsgade, an Copenhagen
arts and craft street.
In 1991, I went to Vesterålen in Northern Norway in to have
an exhibition, I came back several times before I moved permanently
in 2000. This time to teach art and craft at the secondary school
in Melbu. After four years, I began to long for going further
north. This time the goal was Spitsbergen where I came for the
first time in 2003 for a six weeks painting trip. Again it led
to more short visits until I moved permanently to Longyearbyen
in the summer of 2004.
