I tremendously enjoy those days of the year and I wish you a Merry Christmas and of course, A Happy New Year. Remain […]

Birds II

My friends, you know these times when life is a roller coaster? Well, add a teething baby and only few hours of sleep per night, and you’ll have an idea of how I live at the moment. Even though I want to write a lot of blog entries about general thoughts about art, about how […]

It’ll pass

My friends, The other night I was working in the studio for my current art show. My studio is located in an industrial area in an old factory building. It’s usually pretty quiet there in the evenings. And hell –I enjoy that silence. So I sat there and cut and glued loads of paper to a new […]

Exhibition: Zurück in die Zukunft

Dear Ones, Last week was the opening reception of my latest exhibition, at the Kunsthalle St. Annen in Lübeck, Germany. It is the first big project since the birth of our son, and I was curious how this would turn out. It went well even though I suspected it might not. Working while having a […]

Movement

My dear friends, Last week was incredibly annoying. For my oncoming exhibition I work on a looped animation that will be part of an installation. I’m going to combine video with paper objects as in my installation and even if. I haden’t worked with After Effects in a while, and I felt a bit stiff in the beginning and […]

Comic & Storyboard

Dear Ones, As you have probably noticed, I try to keep track on a regular basis here about what I got done during the week concerning the arts. Last week was all about visual storytelling (well, it actually always is). More specifically, it was about drawing comics and storyboards. I also wanted to move on with the animation […]

Choices

My friends, from time to time one of you ask me how I’m able to keep pace with all the things I do while having a baby. I’ll tell you. Usually a day has 24 hours and a week 7 days. It’s the same for every human being who measure time this way. A baby, […]

Pioneers

Dear ones, The other day I had a beautiful thought (the hubby says I have those quite often): I was thinking about how culture develops and how important people are who aren’t afraid of walking ahead and trying new things because they want to change a thing. It hit me that this is the very […]

My Week: Animals & Comics

Dear friends, Since we have our baby, my relationship with time has changed a lot: I still have 24/7 as we all do, but I sometimes can’t remember what I have been doing all day even though it seems I do a lot. – I just can’t! So I try to keep track on a weekly basis […]

Dear Diary

Dear friends, Even though the baby structures my day a lot, I try to find as much time as possible to work at the studio (or even at the kitchen table when necessary). The other day I read a blog post by The Ugly Volvo, on What She Does All Day When She’s Home With The […]

Birds

Dear ones, I spent the last week on a beautiful fun project, a puzzle artist’s book. I don’t know if this the right description for it, but I don’t know how to call it otherwise. The basic idea is to create an irregular shaped book out of painted papers, and then create drawings that also […]

Life

My friends, Life is weird and wonderful. A few months ago I was asked by a curator to apply for a fancy museum exhibition, and I did and they eventually chose my work even though it only was a concept. The show is going to open at the end of May – it’s the first […]
