An ongoing artistic journey,
One morning I woke up at 5 am to look at wild Koalas in the outback, in the evening I had an exhibition in Queensland. Another time I tried Chinese calligraphy in an historic art village, and painted with children at an orphanage in the afternoon. It's days like that I live for.
In between these moments, I spend many working days in the studio.
I was born in Sweden and I have so far held exhibitons in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Italy, England and soon Norway. My last project was a multi sensory art project in collaboration with Krisna Patra.
My paintings can be found with collectors in 17 countries.
From 2016 I have developed and founded Zenart a concept of online courses and workshops in creative mindfulness.
Welcome to a world of art and experiences.

Australian art road trip,
In 2014 I wen't on an art roadtrip in Queensland. It was certainly one of the best experiences of my life. During my time here I got to enjoy Oueensland's nature, people and of course wine and cheese.
Most of all I loved the community spirit out in the countryside. It was rather fantastic to see how everyone worked together to arrange an art exhibition with a 3 course dinner.
I want to thank Julia Namour for making it possible, with her wonderful comment "Why not" to make the gallery arrange a 3 day exhibition instead of their regular one month planning.
This year I have finished the first 8 art pieces of Tales of Australia. The originals will be
displayed in Mount Tamborine, and you will be able to buy them as limited edition
art prints as well.
Tales of 2 cities, Channel 5
In 2015 I took part in Channel 5's series Tales of 2 Cities. Each episode
follows a Singaporean living in another country, and a person from
that country living in Singapore. For Sweden they chose a talented
designer working for Scania, and me painting in Singapore.
You can watch the episode on Vimeo.
I can recommend the series if you are interested in the concept of

Bali in my heart, Soul Sister
When I walked in to Sani's studio in Bali and said hello, it was like meeting a very dear friend. She welcomed me with an open heart and a creative mind. Balinese artists love to share and collaborate in their work, which is something that I am passionate about as well.
In 2014 Ni Nyoman Sani came to Singapore for our exhibition Soul Sisters. I arrange art trips to Bali in order allow collaborations with Balinese artists.
It's a journey for those who like to paint and develop with artists, eat great food and enjoy a warm climate.
Send me an email for the program of Bali Art Trips - eat, paint and enjoy
