Qualified midwife since 1977

I lived in Mozambique for 6 years, and I have had long stays under distant skies, for instance in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, the Mediterranean countries, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland.

Originally, it was my profession as a midwife which brought me to other worlds. Always bringing paints and paper so I could capture moods and shapes in words and pictures.

My first exhibitions as an artist were abroad. Paintings I had secretly been working on in Afghanistan where paper and paints were smuggled in. Later, the paintings were exhibited in Pakistan.
The artist in me has now captured the agenda. I am compelled to trace the forms and colours, the light and magic, the soul and spirit of the world that surrounds me.

My perceptions travel through my hands and come out in pictures – and words.

A playful mixture of abstract and recognizable shapes.
