“In my work, I have been influenced a lot by popular culture. Although as a graphic artist and illustrator I have not drawn cartoons myself, very often the characters in my sculptures are familiar from the pages of comic books. Nature and animal subjects have also been very dear.
My art is characterised by a warm humour. Handcrafting, and the direct contact with different materials such as wood, ceramics and bronze, is important to me in my work. Contrary to the mainstream of contemporary art, my works do not aim to be societally opinionated.”
