Welcome to my world of drawing and painting animals

A Zoo

When I was a kid, I had a dream of having a zoo. Think how amazing, every single day, to be able to go out and talk to, look after, feed, observe and enjoy lots of different animals. I drew a lot of zoological gardens with many different animals.


However, it turned out to be too far between dream and reality, also a desire to become an animal caretaker passed by, the possibilities were quite small in the 70s.

It is hereby a somewhat different Zoo I can invite you into. For my fascination and love for the animals persists, even though I now do fine with the pets and visits to zoos. So welcome to my world of drawn and painted animals.



Inspiration

Animals and nature have a strong positive influence on me - and inspire me to draw and paint.

Shapes, colors, textures of animals and nature, as well as their way of life and behavior fascinate me. The animals give us insight into a breathtaking and exciting, wild world that our own nature harmonizes with and longs for. Presence and tranquility are to be found in nature.


For many years, my drawing and painting universe has had a naturalistic approach, where I  capture the breathtaking details and similarities with the motif.


I now also draw animals in a more sketched and mannered style, which I paint together with an abstract background, thereby giving the picture an imaginary and modern expression.


Female and other motifs are also to be found among my works.



And then of course there are my dog ​​drawings. I draw and paint many dog ​​breeds and they are for sale as designs on many things in my Doggyshops.



Media

My media are Pencil, Ink, Watercolor and Acrylic as well as Colored Pencil and Pastel.

I want my drawings and paintings to convey my enthusiasm and joy and a sense of both processes, layers and intention.

Exhibitions etc.

I have exhibited in many art associations, as well as elsewhere in Denmark and England. 


In addition, my art is published in books and calendars in England and the USA - Please see the CV page.


I am self-taught, but have attended the School of Classical Drawing, the School of Graphic Design, Graphic School and Art & Design, and participated in courses over the years, among others. croquis, crayon, acrylic and watercolor painting.


In 2021, I participate in Art2Life's online course Creative Visionary Program. A very intense 3 month course on art principles.

I also attend a 1 year course at Miriam Schulzman's The Inspiration Place. I believe that learning is an important and continuing part of life, including artist life.
