What things do you love to draw most?
“Most of the subjects I draw are objects. Like food, materials or other things with an interesting texture. I like the contrast. For instance: the texture and lines in meat and stone are quite similar when you draw it. I don’t draw much portraits of people. I guess I feel more comfortable with objects.”
Tell us something about the chalk drawing you made at Volkshotel.
“Well, I didn’t have a plan to start with. I used existing portrait drawings I made earlier and combined them on the spot. I didn’t know how it would turn out until the end. I never do. And sometimes it’s a complete failure. It was quite a challenge to be honest. When the photos were taken I was nervous. It’s the biggest drawing I’ve ever made. But I’m pleased with the result.”
What do you do with drawings that you’re not happy with?
“I keep them in a box. Every now and then I go through them and see if there’s something I can use. Sometimes I find small bits that I can re-use to create something new that I do like.”
