She was in 1954 in Klockrike, grew up in Märsta just north of Stockholm and been living in Uppsala for 35 years. She has been Working for the past 30 years in various managerial positions within universities as well as in municipal and private operations. The interest in culture has been around since her childhood. Through her father she was surrounded by history and beautiful things. The urge to express herself with her hands has been a reality since the early childhood, even if she considered herself not able to draw or paint. As she worked her entire life dealing with people and most often in the field of LLM, she is fascinated by the way people conduct themselves, inwards and outwards. She loves Diebenkorn, Rothko, Morris Louis, Kandinsky, Picasso. She paints in acrylic, oi, watercolor, markers, ink, coal. She loves working in sand on canvas to make a “between” sculpture and picture.

LC – What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
ED – Shortly – the experiences of my life including working life and the unbendingurge to express myself.
LC – What are your thoughts while you paint?
ED – It varies a great deal. Sometimes I have an idea, that I ponder upon for a very long time. Sometimes, but more seldom, I just start and see where it leads me. Sometimes I start, stop, wait, wait a bit longer and then continue. I am quite concentrated on what I am doing. My thoughts wonder between something I find exciting, serious, funny and if the paint and figures are going to work.

LC – Do you have any habits or rituals while you work? ED – I like to have order around me, so I try to keep my space uncluttered. It seldom works. I prefer to work late afternoon and night. However, I also have a family with whom I want to spend time, so I work mostly in afternoons.
LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
ED – My life including family, friends, upbringing, experiences from working life is my inspiration. Somehow – I cannot stop being inspired, even if some issues are harder for me than other. Both in the sense that they are hard on my soul and hard to master in creativity.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
ED – My first aim was to get what I had in my head to get through my fingers on to paper or canvas. I was certain that there was no connection between my mind and my hands. I could see, touch, admire art, but I was unable to create myself. Therefore, I had a pent-up need for sketching, painting and trying different techniques. And getting nearer and nearer my thoughts and my feelings and see them occur. The biggest barrier was undoubtedly me and my skills. My great family and
friends cheers me along!
