Can you tell me a little bit about you?
I come from a mixed background, Danish and Mexican. I did my university studies in the UK and have been living in Berlin for a couple of years now..
When did you first discover art, or realize you wanted to make it yourself?
I drew as a child and as a teenager, but it wasn’t until my high school visual arts class that I became very interested in painting and drawing. I had loads of fun in that class and spent a lot of my free time practicing, and it just went on from there!
What ideas are you exploring in your practice?
I am interested in atmosphere and qualities of places, in memory and associations, light, colour, patterns. I find it exciting to arrive at somewhere between representation and abstraction, freeing up some space for the imagination.
What is your process like?
Ideas and subjects for images are mostly based on places and experiences I’ve had. I sometimes make small sketches before working bigger, but that is not always the case – I go with my intuition really. I enjoy working on several pieces at once, this way I don’t overwork and have time to think.
Is there any subject or theme you’ve been particularly interested in lately?
I am loving Joan Mitchell’s work! Landscape and nature are recurring subjects I am drawn to.
What do you find most daunting, challenging, or frustrating about pursuing art?
This one is a paradox – the alone time. I love the space and time to be alone, but I also dislike it sometimes.
How would you define “success” in art?
This is a difficult question, and my answer might change with time, but I think that it might be when the work manages to touch someone – in whatever way.
What are you working on right now?
I am searching for purer colours
