Artist Statement

The images in my work can be seen as leftovers from a proces of remembrance. Thru drawing on found materials I try to convey a sense of loss to the viewer.The backgrounds are deliberately unstable, a drop of water could wash away the image... or a gust of wind could blow the image off the paper, and with this a feeling of impermanence comes in.

Some of my images derive from dreams, some from the memory of people I knew, or places that I have been to that shaped my view of the world.In drawing I try to give my experiences a place.
