Of the various artistic expressions, drawing and photography have always been part of my everyday life in some form. Pens, blocks and a camera have been readily available and there has been a constant search for new materials and equipment.
“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 countless amounts of money. Now the visits are mostly digital and the selection seems endless. But the feeling of walking into an analogue shop is still the best. Feeling the material in the books and pads, the way the pen sits in your hand and having a passionate chat about books and colour with the staff is the part of the whole that is missing in the digital store.
“Pens, paper, passion”
Pens and paper have always been in my bag from the time I could hold a pen and draw my first lines. Over the years, I’ve tried several different art forms, but I’m most comfortable with markers and paper.
“From phone doodles to Crumelurs”
Growing up, our phone books were filled with “phone doodles” as my aimlessly drawn figures and letters took up the pages while long conversations occupied the phone. In working life, notepads look the same. Today, parts of the “phone doodle” have expanded to drawing Crumelurs. A black fineliner draws them in their different worlds. On their desk, the drawing board in the middle is surrounded by more than 200 alcohol-based markers in different colours. Here, Crumelur drawings of different sizes are given colour.
“With the camera through life”
My first camera was bought with money saved up at the age of 7, and since then the 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 take the digital camera with me but the quality of the mobile photos is really good enough for my needs. It is in the moment, in the present, that the best pictures are captured. A selection of photos is uploaded and changed as time goes on in the photo gallery where they are also for sale.
