For me, glass represents a fantastic medium for pictures and shapes. A material that is transparent and almost invisible is better than a blank canvas and can be shaped and filled with almost anything. A sculpture in glass can be looked at, into, and through.

I, like so many artists, get my main inspiration from nature. A form, a colour, the movement in the human body, or the subtile communication you can get with an animal that shows the same curiosity as you do in the interaction.

When I moved to Australia from Sweden, I realised how similar the cultural mentality is. I guess both Australians and Swedes are nature romantics. We have to deal with nature in a respectful way, otherwise, it will deal with us. We are not guests who watch and visit nature once in a while. We are a part of it whether we like it or not.
