Visual artist, author, and illustrator.
Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, 1968.
Lived on the Danish island, Bornholm, 1982-1986 and again 1989-2014.
Lived in Berlin, Germany, 2014-2021.
Now (Februrary 2022) living in Korsør, Denmark, since October 2021.
When I, 17 years old, left my mothers home at Bornholm and moved to Copenhagen, I had lived in about 29 places around in Denmark and Greece. 21 years old I got pregnant and moved back to Bornholm.
When my kids was small, I wrote and illustrated children books. Now I am writing mostly for adolts, still waiting for and working hard on my big breakthrougt as an novel author.
In 2006 I started painting with oil, and in 2014 I moved to Berlin becourse of my art. After 7 years in Berlin, I stopped painting and moved back to Denmark and setteld down in Korsør, where I am still living. After a few month I realised, that I could not live without creating art. Now I work in other materiels and teknicks. You can read much more about me and my art here on my webside and see and buy my art works.
