Simplified expression and limited palette are hallmarks of my work. I am inspired by strong shapes and contrasts. I paint and draw a lot outdoors, straight from the observation. In the workroom, they are transformed and reduced into new jobs, where I try to describe the essence of a moment or the weather.
An important place for me to do has been Kökar in Åland, its changing color and light phenomena have taught me to see the world with new eyes. The nature of the island impressed right from the first visit. And the whole world, 360 degrees, is all around it, in the middle of the sea, under the feet at a radius of twenty kilometers.
