About Me


Going loopy in my studio.


Under development.


Facebook is the end of western sivilisation and will eventually kill us all. Word.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Only had surfers, quite alot, a very positive experience most of the time. This stuff is great! This summer I hope to surf myself, Venice and Basel at least, going for the art. Please accept me all you people, my karma must be good for SOMETHING!!


Applying paint to canvas, cut&paste stuff, sculpt, chisel, cut, listening to loud music while doing this, late nights doing that, buy stuff, hugging, reading, hungover webnonsense, cooking, play, talk bullshit with good friends, and brand new friends, and laugh out loud in healthy doses. Travel. Babble. Dabble.

Crossing the Atlantic ocean in a big old wooden gaffrigged Norwegian sailboat for one month.
