I was born in Denmark, but from the age of 8 I moved with my family overseas to Kenya. Since then I have lived in many different countries before moving to New Zealand in 1994.
All my life I have been drawing, making, constructing, sewing - but I did not pick up a paintbrush until about 20 years ago. I have been hooked since! I started out with oil paints and loved them from the start. But working in oils takes time to finish a painting and I had a hankering for something quicker. About a year ago I tried fluid poured acrylics and fell in love again.
I now create very colourful, abstract paintings. It is a very messy and unpredictable process, but incredibly fun and liberating. It has given me the chance to express myself more freely.
