“Baa!”

  Christmas draws nearer and nearer and I´m awfully busy making self-made gifts for friends and family – like every year I promise myself to start earlier than before, and like every year I utterly fail to keep that promise… 😉 This year I decided to spice up my gifts with little sheeps that canContinue reading ““Baa!””

Contemplation

In everything I do, especially art, I can not help but letting my feelings and emotions be part of what I do… So, if I´m happy, the things I draw, paint or form of clay, are likely to represent this feeling in some form or other.

This means thatContinue reading “Ghostly Image Come to Life – The Glaze”

A couple of weeks ago I posted my ghostly image “The Silence” which was inspired by a painting of the same name by Henri Fuseli. Somehow I couldn´t let go of the image, it kind of lingered in my mind.   For that reason I decided to try something new and different, something that I´veContinue reading “Ghostly Image Come to Life (well, sort of;)”
