Since my childhood I have been intrigued about what is behind the obvious with the result that in a glance of an eye, I became a rebel and dissected my toy to see what was inside. I wrote my thesis on Photo Therapy and I learned that our interpretations are based on each individual and colored by our history. I also learned about the healing effect within Photography. A work of art in my opinion is communicating a story, thought or emotion and making a statement. The goal is to visually communicate the energies around us, helping viewers see or feel something they haven`t before and help the viewer focus on being present in their surroundings.

In my abstract Photography, being present and in the moment is the key for me catching more than the normal eye can see. The magic happens when I use my manipulation techniques and the final photo allows the viewer to finally see what I perceive. I focus on finding an interaction between myself and my surroundings. The core of my artistic identity is based on expression and the abstract. This core is then built upon and influenced by my natural human curiosity for exploring different cultures and being open minded with human differences. I like to explore photography in creative ways and my development has moved towards other media.

To date, I very much enjoy exploring acting roles for film and commercials. Performance Art has been an important part of my development as an artist and I have my experience from performing for the camera in film- and photo studios, outdoors and on stage as in Live vocal Performances. The motive is always to help the viewer to have an experience within themselves. Most projects I have created and performed are mainly based upon own intuition and focused around themes like identity, vanity and loneliness. As an artist, I enjoy going into dept so my main goal is to be working on long term projects.
