Since 25 years I am doing watercolors where ever I am moving about.They are a kind of documentarian stories of the environment which I experience. The daily live I am interested in. Sure I am also showing the big attractions because they show the culture and describes a nation and people. But also then I put it in a daily live context to shut out romantic feelings. Lamposts, garbage pins, traffic signs, ventilasjon, cars, building sites, …the whole infrastructure is included.

My works have documental karakter, but are naturally subjective. I choose my motives to express a certain zeitgeist and environment.
In my works I am also interested in topography ( environmental situation, communication…), history and the political and social background.
Generally do I try to show « the feeling of a place».
