From an early age, partly thanks to the environment in which I grew up, I have been inspired and fascinated in the connections between humans and animals, the relationship between humans and themselves and people themselves.
These relationships bring to the surface all kinds of experiences, sensations, thoughts and feelings that we humans, and perhaps animals too, can think about. We can let the thoughts and feelings in ourselves spin, ruminate, and let go; a collection of images, colours, smells, sounds, memories, associations, thoughts and sometimes 'a knowledge' that is beyond reason. Some things are deeply entrenched and may even be indelible.
I find it downright fascinating how we humans function with our thinking, feeling, doing and acting. It raises many questions, which I cannot answer, but can explore by drawing.
The drawings are a form of reality that emerges between the direct physical experience and the experience thereof.
In my drawings I like to use pastel, charcoal, pencil, Siberian chalk and drawing pen.
I also use the graphic techniques of etching, drypoint etching, lithography, siligraphy (anhydrous lithography), screen printing and occasional photography.
In addition to drawings and graphics, I also make digital illustrations on commission.
My drawings are exhibited, sold and leased.
This is done by galleries, museums, other exhibition initiatives and through this website.
In the menu bar under Drawings & Graphic Art are various images of work that is for sale.
In the menu bar under Illustrations there are several examples that I made for various clients,
I also offer a small drawing service for in the old-fashioned mailbox, named Drawing Post.
Last of all I offer the Leporello & Beasty Bags , a small cartoon and cotton bags with animal designs.
