I work at the intersection of science and art to tell stories that fill my imagination with awe and wonder. Understanding the way the world works as explained by science is at the core of my artistic endeavour. Through my work I shape, record and share my understanding. I play with creating macro- and microcosms, bringing what is either infinitely greater or smaller than us, to a personal level. I am interested in the way everything is both composed and interconnected. I also love grand narratives and feeling part of the great human and natural stories. Narratives in art are for me expressed in series. Nothing can be expressed in one single sentence, work, or thought. It seems impossible in both life and art. An important artistic influence is folk art, rooted in everyday life and made with the purpose of recording, decorating and paying homage to its subject.
