I have always been fascinated
by clay and what can be created with it,
so I decided early in life that I wanted to work in ceramic sculpture. When I was eighteen I entered the
Design and Crafts at Göteborg University, where I
studied ceramics and sculpture for four years.
After my first solo exhibition, in1977,
the influential Swedish art critic Beata Sydow reviewed the
exhibition i the national paper Svenska
ceramics at Gallery Mors Mössa was [ ... ] really something to
remember. It is the artist's first exhibition on her own,
and in utility goods and free pictures on the wall and in
three-dimensional form she shows sculptures of rare poetic and
formal clarity. One seldom sees a
ceramicist so tangibly master the creation of art, so that coordination
between material and picture gives such a fine whole.
that review I was offered to exhibit at Galleri Doktor Glas in Stockholm, which at that time was Sweden's foremost gallery. Then followed solo exhibitions at
Röhsska Konstindustrimuseet in Gothenburg and later at a large number of Swedish art galleries .
Since 1990 I live in southern Spain, just outside the little village of Casares, known for it's picturesque position on a mountain top. The beauty of the landscape inspires my creativity.
It is especially the animals around me that I depict in my own way.
Also the classic Mediterranean art inspires me. My women's faces connect to Greece, Egypt or the Byzantine era.
Instead of mosaic, which the Byzantine and Roman artists used,
I have utilized broken pieces of porcelain in some of my reliefs. Many
of these pieces are found in the sea at my family's house in the
archipelago outside Gothenburg.
