I am passionate about the landscape, the environment and rural way of life and I tell stories about these in my paintings. I am excited by the links between people and their environment, whether it’s rural or urban and re-making connections with the planet through pictures and storytelling. I also tell stories of modern society through folk art, currently I am inspired by protests. I am a rural artist, working at Beechenhill Farm, my family’s organic dairy farm, in the Peak District.
I paint ‘bonader’ (decorative wall hangings in Swedish) Swedish style folk art with homemade egg tempera on linen or canvas. This style of painting died out in the 1800s and I am instrumental in its revival in Sweden, where I run classes every summer.
For over twenty years I have been an illustrator of books and a mural painter. I also make Birds-eye-view Maps. In the past for many years I was a mural painter also making stained glass and tapestry. I also produce award winning website illustrations and designs. I have run community art classes and have strong skills as a communicator, facilitator and teacher.
