My artwork is all about nature, our earth we live in and inspiration by walks in the woodlands, rivers, beaches, hills and mountains.
Our environment is always changing, the seasons, the time of day, the weather, the climate and where in the world we are. The weather creates drastic skies, the wind that blows, stormy seas, and I believe it is an inspiration for us all, wherever it is in, the arts, life itself, how we meet new people, where and how we live our lives.
All seasons have their own variation to give. The shifting between them and seeing our nature change in front of us can be, and most of the time, is a very beautiful occurrence. For me, being Swedish, I used to love all of them, the snow on the branches in the trees changing to water drops in springtime, the first coltsfoot by the roads when spring becomes summer, the crisp and colorful leaves in autumn, the first frosts that stays the hole day in early winter. The difference in the seasons have a bigger contrast between them there than in other places such as on Isle of Man where I used to live or here in Spain where I live now; it is more of a mellow change.
Nature is not only what you can see and touch, it is all around us and the power that it gives us is vital to how we live, survive and create. Growing up in Sweden in a small town and with parents that also have a love for the outdoors, we as a family often spent our holidays in nature and my love for found natural objects started then. Now having two children of my own we go out and explore our surroundings and our garden and shelves at home always contains smaller pieces of driftwood, stones, sea glass and sea porcelain that we have found on our excursions.
