Welcome to my website!
My paintings are surely
the most truthful judge of where I am in my process and
development as an artist. They will also tell you what kind
of motifs that evokes my attention. Jackson Pollock said
that "every good painter paints what he is". So this is
what I am! At least for right now!
During the last part of
2008 and so far in 2009, I have concentrated mostly on
painting people in different situations. All of those
paintings have so far been in executed in transparent
Deni and I were married in 1998. That is also when I moved
to Modesto in California from Stockholm, Sweden. I took up
painting in a more serious manner at about the same time,
taking art classes at our junior college from professors
Petersen, Reilley and Serros. Later I have attended
workshops with some internationally known artists, but I
would say that to a rather high degree, I am an autodidact,
where trial and error has been my guide and teacher.
Lately I have also become seriously involved in developing
an easel system that you can take a look at on these pages.
It works equally well for all mediums and it is very useful
for plein air painting. If you are interested, I suggest
you take a look under the headline RAPP ART SYSTEM and you
will find a VIDEO that describe it in more detail. I have
patent pending for these devices and plan to start selling
them soon here and on eBay.
I would be glad to receive your feedback after your visit
to my website. Thanks!
