Spirit of Iceland
Standing in front of a canvas with a paintbrush in my hand and the palette by my side is in my mind like the beginning of an exciting journey into the unknown.
It can be a long and treacherous road and the destination is unknown but
I am compelled to go on.
The journey itself is everything: it is a quest for colours
and the joy of the moment.
I am passionate about the conservation of the magnificent and tender icelandic wilderness.
In my paintings I express my love of the icelandic nature.
In the last months I have been painting the spirit of the north: the cold, the ice and the glaciers.
I paint with oil colours and mix volcano ash in the paint.
The ash we usually think of as destructive can also be used to create.
