This is a painting about the process of creation. In many ways it is a personal attempt to understand and communicate events that I have been experiencing while painting or singing. Often I have felt as if I am simply the medium through which ideas and inspiration is expressed. In those brilliant moments it is as if you plug into something outside yourself in the ether, which feeds you enormous amounts of information -both factual and emotional. You no longer need to think or plan – you simply act. There is perfect synchronization between you and everything else that exists.

EP artwork I designed for a solo artist called Rune Braendgaard. It opens up like a little brochure booklet. The different layers symbolize peeling away the artist’s outer shell, inner desires and reaching the music: the flower. The final image is the fusion of all three phases, a metaphor for completeness.
All layers were hand-painted in PhotoShop CS5
I’ve always been fascinated by The White Rabbit from “Alice in Wonderland” as I share the feeling that there are never enough hours in a day.
This is a mixture of digital and traditional media. The main image is a watercolor painting with color pencil detailing, which didn’t get scanned too well, so I started to play around with it in Adobe PS CS4 to see what would happen.
The frame is an edited version of a photo/brush stock
This was a heavily experimental piece, done purely for relaxation. It’s actually showing the front of the body while the head is facing the opposite direction, an attempt to illustrate ambivalence. The strings/staircase play a significant role as well.
