2018 Norway. Oct-nov. Tromsoe International Church festival. It is with the utmost joy that I again participate in Tromsoe International Church festival with an exhibition of paintings in Tromsoe Cathedral. 10 years ago I had another exhibition in the Cathedral, which resulted in my trypticon “the Creation” to be in the upper front of the church for 9 years.
This time we are working with a new theme – and new partners. It is exciting. I look ever so much forward to this exhibition.

2018 10th of August. Skæring Church. “The Way of Love” “Kærlighedens Højsang”. More info coming

2018 9.th of June, Denmark. Ebeltoft. Wild with Water. In connection to a project that runs all over Denmark, Ebeltoft has initiated this exhibition with focus on Water. This project is focused on ships and harbours and people who love to be in or on the water element. So this is the focus of my paintings to the exhibition in Ebeltoft; the love and the fascination of the water element. The exhibition will mark the opening of the festival day in Ebeltoft.
Exhibition 7.-10.juni 2018 /”Fascinated by Water” in Ebeltoft.
