MyStory

About my life and art

I am a Swedish born artist, living in Finland and a member of Suomen Taiteilijat ry, the Finnish Artists Association.  I have always loved classical art, classical music and medieval history. My classical art studies I have conducted at Repin Institute as well as HERA Helsinki Atelier of Representational Art, under Daniel Enckell. I have participated in different art exhibitions in the Helsinki area.  I have also educated myself in medieval blacksmith as well as banner creation.

To learn more about the great masters and their classical techniques, I have tried to follow their artistic process and recreate, from my artistic point of view and with my personal input, some of their masterpieces as well as my own art with oil paintings and historical banners.

Hopefully, my art inspires you and you are welcome to contact me for orders and other topics.

Creating my version of "The Arnolfini Wedding"

In this video, I share my creative process of producing my version of the famous painting "The Arnolfini Wedding" by Jan van Eyck, also called "The Arnolfini Portrait" or "The Arnolfini Marriage".

 
 
 
Re-enactment equipment.

I have also done some blacksmith work and designed banners and other paraphernalia for re-enactment purposes or home display. In the picture, for example, a half-sleeve chainmail, a two-handed sword for training, collector's "Conan the Barbarian" sword, a small axe, a "morning star", a small crossbow, a knight's dagger, leather arm bracers, a small coat-of-arms shield and a big banner.
