Artist's Statement

Having grown up in Sweden has influenced me a great deal: the colors, straight pines, midnight sun, the blue mountains. It has been the backdrop in most of my paintings.The figures are mostly animals in motion outlined with distinct color. The human figures are usually static.I use a lot of color with simple brushy strokes. I have been painting since graduating from Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts 1983.
