In my paintings, I hope you feel my joy in creating. I paint acrylic paint on canvas, usually abstract motifs, and sometimes I mix other materials. There is rarely any definite thought before I begin
painting, but the subject is growing and tells me what it will be like. I was born in Malmö in 1963, grew up in Svalöv, took the road of Sala and has now lived in Borstahusen for several years. For a few years I have participated in Vens konstrunda.
I have also exhibited at Galleries around Skåne and in my own Gallery JiL, at Kopparstigen 1, in Borstahusen. There I also have my favorite place, where I enjoy all the best; my studio =)
Education & Inspiration
In my upper secondary
education, I chose aesthetic orientation where I tried different techniques and expressions with the help of teacher, cartoonist, illustrator and visual artist Gunnar Thunberg. I have done a group of paintings during some fun years with many laughs, for the
artists brothers Kjell and Ingvar Karlsson, Landskrona. As a teacher, I have worked extensively with children and their image creation. At Öland Folk High School, I have trained to paint nature and landscape. Some other courses in image and form have
been over the years and I have also arranged courses in painting for beginners on a number of occasions. I have painted a year in Roy Evertsen's target group, Landskrona.
