Founded and established the company: ANIMA ApS (All Nations In Modern Art - Inspired by my experiences from USA I wanted to create an international platform for artists in order to communicate visually through art across borders. The intention was idealistically founded and I've never been minded for business, so we realized one exhibition only: THE ANIMA AWARD EXPO 2011, whereafter we were ruined and forced to stop the ANIMA project. I'm simply too much a painter myself to be a curator as well. The one part excludes the other in my world.

THE CALL! Here my life changed, and I dedicated my life 100% to art


Working 7 years in my daddy's drawing office. Doing reproductions of the architect's drawings and whatever work I was capeable of. I thought, that I should become an architect and run the company: Saar's Tegnestue" some day, but finally I had to realize, that houses and buildings didn't mean anything to me. I liked the work with the drawings, but I was much more interested in cartoons.
