Of the various artistic expressions, drawing and photography have always been part of my everyday life in some form. Pens, paper, and a camera have been readily available, and there has been a constant search for new materials and equipment throughout the years.
“A toy store”
Visiting bookstores where books, pens, and paper coexist is like walking into a toy store. These are places where I have spent countless hours and invested innumerable amounts of money. Now the visits are primarily digital, and the selection seems endless. But the feeling of walking into an analog shop is still the best, where I can touch the material of books and pads, holding the pens, and experiencing how it sits in your hand. And experience chatting about books with staff is also missing in a digital store.
“Pens, paper, passion”
Pens and paper have always been in my bag from holding a pen and drawing my first lines. Over the years, I’ve tried several different art forms, but I always return to markers and paper.
“From phone doodles to Crumelurs”
When growing up, our phone books were filled with “phone doodles” as my aimlessly drawn figures and letters took up the pages while long talks occupied the phone. In working life, notepads look the same. Today, parts of the “phone doodle” have expanded to drawing Crumelurs. A black fine liner draws them into their different worlds. The drawing board in the middle of their desk is surrounded by more than 200 alcohol-based markers in different colors. Here, Crumelur drawings of various sizes are colored.
“With the camera through life.”
At the age of seven, I bought my first camera with money saved up, and ever since, my cameras have been replaced from time to time. Now the pictures are mostly taken with the mobile camera that is always at hand. Occasionally I bring the digital camera with me, but the quality of the mobile photos is good enough for my needs. It is in the moment, in the present, that the best pictures are captured. A selection of images is uploaded and changed as time goes on in the photo gallery where they are also for sale.
