Sweden had accepted me, given me a personal number, bank account,and a few temporary living solutions. In 2018, I felt like a gypsy, moving from place to place because of external conditions. I learned about the Sami people, polar animals, and receding ice caps. I could identify with these subjects and thought it was fitting to create a Charity for WWF. I gave a percentage of any artwork sold during the one-week exhibition to the cause.

Finding inspiration as a creator is an everyday task, I have to think about many parameters, social, political, economic, etc… How to create something beautiful, that is pleasing, that will brighten up someone’s life, bring color, love, and joy.

I met some amazing new friends that invited me to their country house, that I created as a watercolor and offered it to them as a gift

My thinking process about what gives art value extended from jewelry to horses, which I think are a sign of wealth and status, consequently I had a Cardinal Gemstone Horses exhibition.

Cardinal gems are gemstones that have traditionally been considered precious above all others. The classification of the cardinal gems dates back to antiquity and was largely determined by ceremonial or religious use and rarity. The term has largely fallen out of use.

The five traditional cardinal gems are: amethyst (purple), diamond (white), emerald (green), ruby (red), sapphire (blue)
