Landscapes of life

EXPERIENCING THE BEAUTY OF LIVING

My legs burning, the heat in my cheeks giving me a red face. Panting I look up on the small dirt path ahead of me. If you don’t know better you might have missed the path altogether, but the red marks on the trees show me that I’m still on the right track.

Slowly I turn around and with a sharp inhale I forget to breath… It’s not only the immense view around me, but the feeling of everything coming together.
My blood pumping trough my veins, the same pulse as the energy of the nature enveloping my living body. I’m alive.

MORE THAN BEAUTIFUL VISUALS

When I paint a landscape I’ve experienced I want to express everything. Not only how the light fell over the ocean. But the feeling of being there, of experiencing this incredible living force.

My landscape paintings could be considered ‘abstract’. But abstract means taking things away and my landscapes are the opposite. They are filled with everything that nature and being alive means.

These landscapes of life are only for sale during an exposition and short thereafter. Follow me on Instagram or sign up for my newsletter to be kept up to date about these!

Remembering beauty

It was winter. We were hiking through the snow in Sweden when it hit me.
The dark clouds in my head came apart in a thundering storm of doubt and self-hate.
Who was I anyway? What use did I have in this world? Why was I living, anyway? What’s the point? And, most of all, why would Jan even love me? What is there to love about ME?

When we arrived home Jan sort of shoved my paints and brushes in my hands. “Go on!” He said. “Go paint what you feel, who you feel you are, right now!”

I did.

And the result was life changing. I saw the thunderstorm and the dark clouds, yes, but there was so much beauty too. The painting, full of my doubts, my insecurities showed me that I was beautiful. In my own, special, loving way.

Intuitive inner landscapes

Who are you, really? What would the real you look like, represented in a landscape?


The landscapes start with a story. Of you, of me, of someone you love. It doesn’t have to be much. One sentence can be all that I need to make the connection with your inner beauty. Your personal inner landscape will show itself when I put my oil pastels to paper.

This is your loving reminder of the beauty that’s you.

This is the most special gift someone ever gave to me.
