I PASSED FROM the Graphical Institute in Stockholm 1966 and aftere that I was working as a graphical designer starting at

an advertising agency. After designing schoolbooks for a few years

I started working with magazines which had then cought my interest. During a couple of years I also designed exhibitions for

the Swedish Internatiional Development Agency. I worked at several of the big printing houses in Sweden, designed and participated

in launching two new magazines to the market. Also I redesigned Sweden´s largest monthly magazine.

In 2004 I retired and moved to my house in Canillas which I´ve had since 1982. Apart from painting I then also started working with sculpture. At Moira Schepel Art Studio I worked with alabaster but later started working in cement. I also make masks and figures in paper mâchée painting them with tempera. Lately I have started experimenting with colonography.

 

ALL MY LIFE I WANTED to paint but somehow my profession as a graphical designer stopped me from doing it. Maybe the two were too close to eachother – anyway I always ended up reproducing reality and that was not what I wanted to do. It was not until I went through one year of art therapy that I managed to free myself from "reality". A few years later I came in contact with Vedicart and then things really started to happen. At this point I left oil and starded topaint in acrylic because it dries quicker.

 

VERY SELDOM I KNOW what I´m going to paint so I just get started an see what happens. Sometimes there are many layers of paint until I see something coming out of the canvas. It´s not only the process itself that inspires me but also colours, forms and textures. In the paintin process I find a spiritual aspect that is important to me.
