   ‘Growing up in Sweden, my paintings are strongly influenced by my Scandinavian roots, but it’s the dramatic Scottish landscapes that inspire me to paint. I spend a lot of time walking and being in nature, and my paintings are often based on memories or feelings of a place. With the use of layering techniques and some bold mark making, I aim to create atmosphere and mood in my work. Although the Scottish weather can be challenging, it’s the ever-changing elements that create this atmosphere and mood that are essential for my paintings. Living in the Cairngorms National Park and being surrounded by the wild landscapes makes painting here a very natural process and allows for a very immediate response when I go into the studio. I hope this shows in what I create, and that the viewer will connect emotionally and really feel the place.’
