Artists Statement:

As a sculptor, I am very interested in investigating how fragments and volumes found in nature can be transformed into new, organically inspired, but abstract forms, which can be locked into a sculptural state of eternity in the hard granite.

The organic forms sensed in my everyday life are stored like letters in my internal alphabet
of form and constitute the basis of my sculptural language, the syntax of which rests on basic fundamental sculptural principles given personal expression through a precise definition of the organic volumes that constitute the basic substance in my works.

I aspire in my works to create a room for spatial perception and imagination.

During more than 20 years I have been working with granite sculptures and I have made
more than 80 commissioned works in public places, for compagnies and private clients.
I have participatet in a lot of exhibitions in Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Germany, Holland, Schweitzerland, France, Ireland and Japan.
