Born in Aalborg in 1973, the artist lives and works in Hjørring (DK).
“Reflected in my work with the human figures is a lot of intellectual baggage. I work without sketches or models, thereby creating a plurality of layers of corrections and additions. I simply continue to work on the sketch. The energy of the sketch is paramount to me, and without it everything would freeze and feel constructed. During my working process, modifications and additions become the very essence of my characters, and like modern humans, my figures are made up of loose ends and bad connections.”
