“Painting has been a life long partner most of my adult life, at times as a professional doing interactive murals with a long term institutionalized patient group, sometimes providing art therapy in Yugoslavian refugee camps in Europe and sometimes as an architect toiling with architectural presentation drawings.
I practiced architecture both in United States and Denmark where I grew up. Art and architecture are intimately interrelated. I think of architecture as being functional art.
After moving to South Carolina it has been a pleasure to finally indulge in painting, on my own terms and is now painting exclusively for the love of art. I have taken advantage of opportunities to exhibit and sell my work in each country I have lived in for an extended period. Select exhibitions include Columbus Museum, GA, Lyn Galleria in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and at the professional counter part to AIA (American Institute of Architects) in Mexico City and in Denmark my murals are placed on the walls of many institutions in the ancient city of Ribe.
In 2012 I received the honor of being selected as SC Artist of the Year by the magazine TOSCA of the Twin Cities.”
