About Me

My professional interest and work with sculptures goes back to 1982 in Copenhagen, with a background in accounting. The curiosity for searching and understanding the expression of sculpturing pushed me forward and led me for the time being to an academic education in Fine Art. Today I live and have my own workshop in a former sawmill near by Odense on the island, Funen.
The stone became my choice of material as I am fascinated with the order and beauty of nature, much greater than me. Another reason for my choice was the fact that one of my great fascinations is the landscapes in southern Sweden.
There I spent a lot of time, when I lived in Copenhagen, walking around ex. in the woods, finding myself surrounded by stones and blocks shaped like creatures from a fairy-tale, just raised from the ground/soil. The whole scenery look like a play and the stage was set by the sun, rain etc.
For many years I was occupied mainly with making storytelling-stones, often with a smooth surface.
Later on I was inspired from old traditions of crafts, as functional parts in machinery. In my imagination and with the intention of creating motion it was translated into objects which I called semi-functional. I have seen the sculpture as a building or as an aspect of it around the year of 1994 and until to day. I am aware of the fact that these 3 themes more or less can appear in some of my later sculptures.
