Everybody has a story

My Story

Working in a studio at Holte Midtpunkt

Well, I didn’t have a clue how to paint, neither did I know how to draw, so after a few tries, I gave up. It is close to impossible to paint something without knowing anything about paint, brushes, canvases and so on. I didn’t even know how to blend colors and the first attempts were really bad. A few months passed by and then I went to my attic again for the supplies. THIS time I wanted to do it right and went to the internet to read about painting with acrylics and watched a whole bunch of online videos and then I started painting. A work which would soon fill up my entire life. It became my passion and I started dreaming about all the paintings and compositions I wanted to make.

A whole new life began!

Of course I also went to some art classes, but mostly I went home very disappointed, since I didn’t think I had learned enough for the money I had paid. So I continued to look at internet – online art classes and I painted and painted and painted. It is now 5 years ago and I have painted more than 300 works and sold more than 80. How come you have so many ideas to put on the canvas, you might ask. Well, I had a tough childhood – losing my mother at the age of 7 and have had a rather turbulent life, marrying far to early and moving to Berlin for 12 years. I have seen a lot in my life. I have gone through really tough times and I think that painting is my way of expressing myself and working through all my rough times. What I know is that I have had many passions for a short while throughout my life, but none of them lasted very long. Painting is here to stay and it means so much to me to be able to paint.

Take a tour of my website – look at the paintings and see for yourself where this has taken me.
