Min allra första mandala


Ordet mandala betyder cirkel och Inom cirkelns gränser tecknas andra geometriska figurer. Traditionellt används mandalan i samband med meditation. Den delen förstår jag precis, för själv går jag helt in i formerna medan allt annat runtomkring försvinner.

Jag har tidigare tecknat zentange, som också är en slags meditativ tekningsform där figurer och former skapar nya mönster.

Sättet att arbeta är perfekt för att boosta kreativiteten, för själv skapar jag dessa mönster utan någon större ambition och utan en plan. Varje cirkel, varje mönster är oplanerad till dess att jag sätter igång och tecknar det. Jag vet aldrig i förväg hur slutresultatet kommer bli.

It's actually very relaxing do draw a mandala. I really enjoy drawing the patterns and to see how the figure comes together.

Small dedication to my own art

I don’t really like to put my own art on the walls at home, but I have dedicated the small hallway to my own paintings. Here are three of my old aquarelles, painted after photos from holiday trips to China, Warsaw and Riga. 










































Beautiful old buildings in China, panited in 2012.










































My favourite corner in Warsaw, painted in 2013










































Amazing facade in Riga, painted in 2014.

First experiment with ink

For little over a year ago I rediscovered a passion of mine; drawing and painting. This interest has developed a curiosity to try new techniques, like ink. This is my first experiment with these kinds of colours, and it’s sooooo fun!


























Yes, this is my favourite pattern!

Black and white version of the tulip wreath

I have discovered that I love making dot drawings, so I did a black and white dot version of my latest drawin; the tulip wreath. I didn't do the shadows because I think the drawing would look messy.

A wreath ot tulips

It's always nice to draw flowers, even if I don't do it so often anymore. When I was younger it was one of my favourite motives, especially roses. This is the first time I draw tulips. This is also my first version; I’m already working on another one in black and white.
