I was born in Sønderborg, near the border between Denmark and Germany in 1967. My father came from Germany, and my mother is Danish. They moved to Fredericia in 1970, where my daddy established himself as an independent Architect. Fredericia has always been our family's hometown, and that's where I lives today.
I have two older sisters, and had a fantastic childhood, where love, freedom, creativity, sports, and intellectual and visual skills were essential values in the family.
A stroke hit me at the early age of 14 while competing in a 10 km. Run. An event that changed my life by transforming me into a very sensible boy who looked to art to express myself, pouring all my energy into drawing, poetry, and music instead of the sports.
In 1989, while studying at the Teacher's Seminar in Tønder, I had developed in more and more artistic direction, and one night's dream transformed my life completely. Already at the moment of dawn, while waking up, I knew that life had changed overnight. From that moment, I became an artist and have never doubted that ever since.
I packed his stuff, left the girl with whom I lived, left my studies at the Teacher's Seminar, and moved into a collective with a group of young hippies, musicians, and artists.
In 1990 I moved to Copenhagen to pursue my artist career, learning from established artists and studies on the art-museums in Copenhagen. In 1993 I returned to Fredericia, my hometown, where I continued my studies at the Teacher's Seminarium in Haderslev. In 1999, I graduated as a Teacher and worked a few years as an Art-teacher in a high-school while remaining active as an independent artist.
I have developed a very successful artistic career by overcoming many health challenges caused to epilepsy.
My works showcase symbols and figures meticulously arranged with excellent compositions that play with color, movement, and forms. My surreal imagery is provocative and touches social themes.
In a way, "pain and suffering may be the most vital source of inspiration...These times of suffering during the pandemic should help us develop the strongest passion for art ever because art enables you to rehabilitate and become stronger. Through pain, loss, and suffering the human being expand their depth and understanding of life. Those who never experienced the darkness won't be able to appreciate the light."
