A short intro. I am 69, and technically I am retired, though I was never as busy as I am now.
Its said that I have drawn and painted since age 4 and hardly was a pencil gathering dust around me.
Since then I used illustrations as a tool in product development and industrial design in all from Volvo to developing marine technology for the environment in Sweden during a 6 year R and D program. All very much technology. So, after a 30 year hiatus I returned to painting just to remain human.
I don’t call myself an artist. In my mind, true artists historically dedicated their often short lives to art and higher purposes. I cannot say that I have any particular style, but experiment (see the Van Gogh experiment, painted just to try it…)
I just like to create, whether it is a painting or writing a book (which I persist in doing). And if you enjoy it also, then so much for the better.
