I was born in 1953 in Södertälje, Sweden (just south of Stockholm) and remained there except recently when I moved to Lid, Södermanland (more south). 
A central theme in my oeuvre is TIME
I work with the tools that my art requires. It is the idea that rules. It may be paintings, music, photo, video...  I have made public art and portraits.
Besides my own creations, I work with other peoples art, makes exhibitions, acted as an art gallery director, was a consultant, teacher...

Thoughts and background to the works:

Man has from the moon taken pictures showing the earth as a blue oasis in space.  It is difficult to imagine all boundaries between countries and people. It is impossible to understand that man is fighting for power, often in  the name of God, about a fictitiously constructed territory (nation). To get temporary benefits, we destroy the environment in our home on the third planet from the star in our solar system. We are one of all the animals on earth. A destructive animal that should be and must become more loving and wiser. For our survival ...
      "Shall the Dust Praise Thee?" was published 1967, a science fiction novel by Damon Knight. When God returns to earth for the day of judgment, everything is wiped out by war. There is nothing left. God finally finds an engraved and molten metal filled in text: "We were here. Where were You? ".
       On a thousand-year-old runestone Skarpåkerstenen, which stands at Lindö Manor, about half a mile from where I live in Lid, is an inscription "Earth shall be riven and heaven above". Ragnarok!

      Oceanic feeling II 

Oceanic feelingis a mysterious condition when you feel a sense of belonging and unity with the universe. 
In 1989, I did an art project “Ocean feeling”. I left a message, a small engraved  silver jewellery, you could put on a necklace, inside a box made of oaktree in a lake. Because the land rises it would be visible and could be found about 2000 years into the future. There were 2 silver jewelry, one was given to a girl 1989 and one was a gift to someone in the future. 
in 2016, continued the project. A ceremony took place at sacred sites: an ancient Buddhist temple Tomyoji, Sankeien garden in Yokohama Japan and at a forminne in the Lid, Sweden. In the Japanese temple, there is a picture of the grave-mound in Lid reshaped like a ship. The ships both directions form a line around the planet. In Japan a young painter were given a silver piece of jewelry to wear around her neck. In Sweden it was given posthumously to the first known female Swedish artist.
The message on the plates is:
