wonderfull just to be in my studio in the month of november 2020
and think of all the challenges of the future and all the fine
times with art in the 12 years lying behind me. Sitting in front
of : The land of the Giraffoes. A land of
dreams and hopes.
I had my debut as an artist on KS 2011 in Denmark. At the age of
68. Maybe a bit late, but the time was right.
that I was born in the little village of Hoerve, Seeland, Denmark
in 1943. So I grew up in Odsherred, the place you never leave,
before it has put its mark on you. To understand the world I was
living in a bit better, I wanted to study history and religion, so
I was educated as an historian at the University of Copenhagen
from 1962-69. I loved teaching and from 1969 to 2008 I taught
history, religion and ancient history at the High School of
Slagelse, wrote some teaching books and gave a lot of lectures all
had always worked with art, but in 2008 I started out more
seriously - with all the insecurity embedded in changing work and
career - and was admitted to some important juried
exhibition in Denmark and abroad. In the last 12 years art life
has been good to me and given me exhibitions in USA, among other
places New York, Germany, Greece, Poland and Denmark and a many
awards for my work as an artist.
life has been good to me, always giving enough strength to
overcome the problems. I am very gratefull for my sweet, sweet
wife for 55 years, our wonderful family consisting of three
children, their spouses and eight grandchildren. They fill our
life with light, happiness and gratitude.
am really looking forward to follow my artistic destination in the
years to come. Sometimes it makes me wonder if it is me or my
destiny that shapes my life, but actually it does not matter.
you will endulge me, I have a message: It is
never to late to start a new life, and: if
you dont follow your dreams, they will die. Good
luck to you.
