I was born July 22. 1963 in Santa Monica, California, USA. In 1978, I moved to Gothenburg, Sweden where I lived until 1997. I then relocated to Malmö in the far south of the country and lived there off an on for close to 20 years.
Between 1990-1992, I attended Gotland Art College, located on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Among several other active artists teaching there, I was mentored by Helena Andreeff and Staffan Laurin, both inspiring me to pursue a career as a visual artist.
After returning to Gothenburg in the mid-1990s, I continued to paint and had solo shows at among other venues, Galleri Gibraltar and Galleri Viking. The combination of computer graphics and the world wide web provided me with a wealth of inspiration.
Travel has always played an important role in my life and my artwork is often a reflection of impressions from travels around the world.
As of March 2020, I will be residing in Vejbystrand, Sweden.
