My artist course started as a painter with a debut exhibition at Galleri Bacchus in Borås in 1991. For many years my palette has now consisted of stones from different parts of the world. It can be red or yellow Persian travertine, gray blue Italian barrel glio, blue granite from Brazil, shimmering alabaster from Volterra in Italy, black labrador with blue eyes from Norway, fossil-wrapped Kinnekulle limestone, Swedish diabase - master of contrasts ...

Stone raises emotions. Each stone is unique and leaves its own track. The character of the stone is included in the sculpture. I am fascinated by how the chisel tracks so easily change the experience of the stone surface. How immediately the eye and hand register the smallest new shape.

The sensation of something new and undiscovered. And thereby the temptation to dare to continue exploration, with the risk of losing it already achieved. The boundary between meaningful and meaningless can be subtle. The experience of the material may interactwith the ideas, feelings and intuition. Newfound experience added to old.

The house's symbolic value has long interested me. The first thing I took out sometime in the 1990s was in classic Carrara marble. Work continues in an unfinished process - my attempt to explore life. In the form of the house, there are regular and calculated ones that are risk-free and provide security. But I also want the stone's natural surfaces, irregular and challenging, which gives the necessary contrasts. Just like life itself.
