How could I ever leave my palette? It all started with a first self portrait in the Höganäs Stadshotel Studio. My great mentor and relative Inger Hodgson introduced me early to the arts of portrait painting. In 2005 I attended her workshop, and since then closely kept following her foot steps. This way I have been schooled in the Sight-Size method, the limited palette and of course belonging art history. My greatest and dearest gratitude to you, Inger!
