My paintings are the “stuff that dreams are made of.”
The painting process is informed by my long career as a
psychoanalyst and psychiatrist and my Scandinavian
The painting process is partially directed by free
association which results in the painting emerging in an
inter-subjective space in which I influence the painting and
the painting influences me. Scandinavian color sensibility,
carving and a strong textile tradition continue to influenceme in my work.
Recently the three R’s; refuge, respite, and rejuvenation,
have been the themes dominating my work in this time of
turbulence. The colors and freedom of the natural world
offer an escape into tranquility.
