I want to create by moving my body, by feeling as well as seeing, and by challenging the human aversion to discomfort. I am therefore drawn to metal as my primary medium. My process is in many ways related to the concepts I explore: The ideals and flaws of us, our bodies, and our social roles. I draw on my background as a social scientist and a long-standing interest in history and mythology.
Although I have actively been learning art and craft since 2003 it was only in 2016 I took the step to leave my career as a researcher to do art full time. Currently complementing my earlier informal training with a BFA in metal art at HDK-Steneby.
