Hasse – that was his name – finally arrived in the garden of the sunflowers. He was my brother in spirit.
It was now a year since he took his life. Like his sister and also his art teacher, I inherited his artist material.
With this I created this painting. He dreamed of traveling to Australia, maybe he will get there in a painting.

I get my inspiration from The Earth and The Universe. I usually get my motives from a nerver-ending source – The Great Cosmic Sea. Sometimes the motives come as flashy and very clear pictures. Self-employed advertising designer, illustrator, journalist and photographer.
As an artist -painter and cartoonist – I have participated in a number of jury-evaluated exhibitions and about 50 other exhibitions, many of them solo exhibitions.
Over the last 15 years, I´ve been teaching “The principles and techniques of Vedic Art”, mostly at The Scandinavian Ayurveda Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.
I love color, space and contrasts of light and darkness. Soft movements and distinct lines characterize my art.
