Sculpture and drawing

In my work is life and growth, but also decay and destruction often central themes. The works can be viewed as a game with abstract organic forms. They can give a sense of something almost recognizable – Closeups, or pictures of something bigger: landscapes, mountains, valleys, craters … They perceived by many as quiet and sensual, but also disturbing.

I have worked in many different materials and techniques. Currently I exchange between drawing and sculpture made in stone and bronze.
