My artistic journey began in 2010 with a first painting. My quest for serenity in a hectic lifestyle created an instinctive need to get my thoughts on canvas. My inner struggles, my shared joys and my illusions about the future are all represented within my work. My artistic outlet represented a tirade of emotions that on a blank canvas created a coherent expression. A vision. An inner peace.
A passion for a hobby eventually developed into a natural vent for my feelings to be expressed in shapes and colors. Within my art I began to see patterns that characterized me, the paintings began to tell a story that took me on an inner journey of unexpected proportions. The feeling is strong and it is reflected in the colors I work with.
I have been fortunate enough to have a lot of support from friends and family, but particularly from my spouse. It was due to his encouragement and belief in me that I began to devote myself to my art with the purpose of sharing it with a broader audience. In the summer of 2013 I committed fully to my art and in the autumn of the same year I invited friends, acquaintances and passers-by to a vernissage and showcased my work. I felt nervous and exposed, yet excited and filled with a warm feeling of pride. Sutte Art was introduced to the public in a dark basement venue on in Malmo. The positive response from visitors and the successful sale of my paintings made me seriously want to pursue my urge to develop my art further.
Both the colors and patterns in my paintings are strongly affected by my feelings. An artistic dichotomy of raw and spontaneous openness paired with a meticulous sense of color and form has developed what I now fondly call Sutte Art. My paintings reflect my different moods. When you purchase one of my paintings you will get a color set page from my diary.
