I was born in Denmark and lived there until I was 8. Since then I have lived in Kenya, Dubai, Scotland and England. I came to New Plymouth in 1994 and have lived here since. All my life I have loved being creative - making, building, sewing, drawing - and finally taking up painting about 20 years ago.
I started with oil paints and love the vibrant colours and creamy texture of them, but often found myself getting too controlled and restricted with a paint brush. In recent years I have discovered poured fluid Acrylics and I am having lots of fun with this extremely messy, unpredictable and challenging medium. It is allowing me to be more experimental and loose with my art work, yet still letting me indulge in my passion for colour.
