Schooled in classical realist painting, I’ve chosen an expression which more or less falls within the figurative tradition. The foundation of my way of working derives from the nineteenth century Ateliers in France.
I alternate between traditional painting/drawing and digital imaging. Finished work includes classical portraiture, landscape paintings, interiors, concept art of various kinds, mattepaintings, story boards etc.
Born in Märsta, Sweden, I grew up living in Sweden, Belgium and Germany.
Swedish-American; I enjoy dual citizenship.
Constantly looking for work and representation. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
I work out of Stockholm, Sweden.
