I was in the wild for many years

I started drawing when I was a little girl. I had a lot of interest in studying faces and portraying them. Especially older people, perhaps because their faces showed that they had lived a long life, and told a story.

I understood early on that figurative representation was not the ‘right’ thing but I did not understand why. It did not stop me from painting what I liked. Since I did not go to art school, I learned painting from the old masters.

I was in the wild for many years until I studied at The Nerdrum School, where I learned about philosophy in art. Then I understood that I am not an artist but a kitsch painter.

No matter how much we scorn it, kitsch is an integral part of the human condition.
