I have been doing graphics since the early 60's when I went to the Stockholm Academy of the Arts  .
In the mid 90's I started using  photopolymer. Make graphics using light! Previously, I worked a lot with etching and high pressure ...     
Fp gave space to use my high pressure and other images - processed in fp. Now I have started again with just high pressure. Lino and woodcuts. But now I use the fp pictures as a start.   
Cutting takes time… It sharpens the imagination. It goes its own way

About my images:  Man, his surroundings, fears and dreams.
