My workshops and courses all have an emphasis on issues as simple solutions, sustainability and spirituality. Sessions explore relationships between art, craft, the individual and the environment.

I usually run my courses from my atelier in Aarhus – but with occasionally ‘detours’ to other locations. Taught in small groups, these sessions provide lots of opportunity for questions, creative conversations and a playful exchange during the day – with me as well as fellow students.


ARTISTS’ BOOKS  Saturday 16. August 2015Create your own notebooks, journals, book-art. Simple structures and bindings – lots of fun!  .

MANDALA, FLOWER OF LIFE, GOLDEN RATIO – and other universal, archetypical, spiritual and geometrical figures. Weekend 12.-13. September 2015Sacred Geometry is the basic fundamental building blocks of our Universe are based on mathematics and form. Sacred Geometry can be found in all of nature in golden mean proportions, Fibonacci spirals, hexagonal structures, pentagonal structures, platonic solid structures, crystal structures, etc. We’ll meditate on – and create images – inspired by these beautiful structures.

ARTISTS’ TRAVELL to ISTANBUL 24.09 – 1.10.2015. An 8-days creative quest to Istanbul where we stay at a super cozy, family-run hotel in the central and charming old town Sultanahmet – right next to all the great sites Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Bazaar, Topkapi, Bosphorus, etc. We’ll enjoy daily inspirational outings as well as creatively working at the lovely rooftop terrace at our homebase.

I have designed this ‘artistic infusion’ by carefully choosing the best places for soaking inspiration, where I’ll expose the group to a palette of beautiful colors, materials, patterns, stories and sensuous impressions of art, culture and daily life of this facinating city – as it has evolved through the centuries.

Bring a light daypack for your sketch pad and drawing gear. We’ll visit palaces, parks, markets, museums and squares to do sketches and collect impressions and stuff for our further work. Bring your favorite medium. Watercolor, oil and pastels are good basic materials. If you want to work with collage and artists’ books also bring stuff like needles, thread, craft knife, glue and brushes. I’ll guide you whether you prefer to express your creativity by painting and/ or creating a personal, visual journey diary or artists’ book. (NB. Also remember camera!)

The travell is arranged in collaboration with Kreativt Netværk and Kipling Rejser.
