Statement

I visualize myself standing in front of the mirror painting my self-portrait, in different light and in different angles. What is hiding behind the image in the mirror, who is she looking at me so examiningly? I was then 18 years of age. Here I began a journey, where in the continuous strokes of colours I strive to find the shade of colour that carries the light and gives every part of the surface the distinct tone, expressing the character and the inner soul of the face. It sometime happens after intensive work and in a state of strong presence, that this process leads me into a subconscious flow, where the painting starts to tell me something unexpected and the creative process becomes self supporting; making the image "come alive" and amazing me. That is the reason that my work continues now, 35 years later.
