Statement

The Forest has been the birthplace for most of my practice. Before in a more direct manner, now it still holds a central seat but is taking a small step back. For me, the Forest has been the place where things make sense and where I feel at home, conflicted as I am between my two homelands. 

At this very moment I am really interested in ancient beekeeping techniques (discovered in the little yellow book Hives, 2400 B.C.E. – 1852 C.E. by Ellen Lapper and Aladin Borioli). As well as Scandinavian and Northern agricultural folklore, old farmhouse objects and trinkets. 

Musical influences and references from goth and metal music and culture are making their way into the work. I'm currently working very intuitively, letting my feelings and aesthetic preferences guide me.

Most of my life I've been creating drawings, but at the moment I'm becoming more and more engrossed into sculpture and installation work. I'm enjoying trying to create atmospheres, and evoke emotional reactions with the viewer.
