1981 Educated at the  The Royal Danish Academy of Arts, Copenhagen

Fotography is often used together with – or in opposition to direct observation, hereby polarising theese renderings. Humor and irony may be found in the works together with a certain enigmatic quality. It is questioned to what degree reading of the surroundings correspond to reality.
A visual seduction takes place. Later comes interpretation or reinterpretation.

Exhibitions, curating exhibitions, teaching of arts since 1980. Sold to a.o. Collection of Kastrupgaard, New Carlsbergfoundation and Foundation of the Danish State.
