Half Czech, half Danish and nearly also half American, I was born in Denmark in 1975 and moved to Boston Massachusetts in 1982. First to return to Denmark in 1997.
Since childhood I visited one modern art museum after the next with my parents. Already at an early age I was touched by the emotions in the paintings by Frida Kahlo and by the surrealism in Salvador Dalí's and the colours of Wassily Kandinsky and the sculptures of Joan Miró.
Through the years I have studied ceramics, photography, serigraphy, lithography, watercolours, drawing, chalking, sculpting, oil painting, and made jewellery. I have always also been good with my hands. At 13 I redid my parents' kitchen, at 15 I was fixing the plumbing and at 17 I was changing oil filters and exhaust pipes. I have always loved cross-disciplinary projects, which is why I love making this furniture.
Creativity and humour, elegance and surprise are cornerstones in the art I make, and what is important to me is that my art does not need wall space, it does not stand in the way of everyday life and it is sustainble and has a story. Instead I wish to integrate art into everyday life by giving it a purpose, beyond just being attractive to the eye.
Today I live in Hillerød with my kids, Elma and Storm. They are a great support and encouragement and they look the other way when our whole house is in disarray after a photoshoot, or when I am preparing for exhibitions.
The forest is 500 metres from our home and I love walking and mountain biking amongst the trees, especially in spring. I find a lot of inspiration in the organic shapes and the colours which is why a bit of green can be seen in many of my pieces.
When all the stress then needs to be washed away, a dip in Esrum Lake is just a short bike ride away.
