I was born in Halmstad, Sweden and immigrated to Canada, with my parents and brothers, in 1950.
I have lived in Quebec and Ontario and, now, I live in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.
My interest in
hobbies has evolved from drawing to painting and then, in 2009, I discovered the joys of making my own jewelry. It was intoxicating to discover that I could paint and make jewelry and enjoy the process of both artworks so much.
Jewelry is a daily love affair and designing and creating a beautiful piece of jewelry gives me much joy.

As a painter, I began my first steps into the field of visual arts, with baby steps. Over the years, my journey has encompassed oil pastels, ceramics, tole painting, acrylics, drawing and pen and ink.
In 1998, when I was introduced to oils at the Fraser River School of Arts, I was "hooked" and found that working with a medium such as oils was truly a pleasure to create a painting and, to this
day, I am continually delighted with my choice.
I am an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the FVC - Fraser Valley Chapter and the South Surrey and White Rock
Art Society and have shown my artwork in their many venues and Juried Shows.
