I am (b. 1979 Cph, Denmark) a painter currently living in Copenhagen, DK.

Made art since I was 14 years old and art is a natural part of who I am and my skills.

 

From 2007 - 2016, I embarked on a painting and visual field research across Europe, living in Venice, Rome, Milan, Paris and Athens, visiting the artworks of the European Masters, researching religious and deific iconography, and exploring the history and meaning of traditional women costuming that all still influence and make up my work today.

 

I received a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmith’s, Uni of London, UK in 2006 and a MA in Art History from Architectural Association, London, UK in 2008.

I was granted Award of Excellence by the Fine Art faculty of Goldsmiths, Uni. of London in 2006 and also granted Horsens Kunstmuseum Art Award in 2007.

 

My paintings, prints, collages, sculptures and drawings are in private collections in UK, FR, DK, GR, IT, UAE, CH, USA, ES.

And currently around 20 artworks of mine are part of public museum collections (see full list below and/or link here).

 

I have exhibited solo and group shows in galleries, museums, art institutions, art fairs, contemporary festivals and kunsthalle in Denmark, Norway, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Greece, France, Italy (see full cv below).
