I’ve decided to continue my journal in English!!! Now my London friends (an a few others out there) can read it as well.
I have studied my Master’s in Culture Policy and Management at City University in London a few years ago. I also had a temporary art studio in Hackney Downs Studios in East London. This was where I painted the one with man and the bugs. Therefore, I have a special relationship to the city so this weekend my family and I were visiting friends from uni. I promised myself to go back every year to stay in touch. This time was the first for baby H.
I have an academic background within culture, design and art, but only on a theoretical level. For those of you who have asked where my painting skills come from, I can tell you that I am self-taught. Although I sometimes dream of studying art, I have had many other interests. Painting was a hobby and not something I ever imagined to do on a fulltime basis, so uni was the only option for my when I had to chose what to study.
Instead, the perfect solution for me was to paint and illustrate as a side project while studying at university. In this way I could both study theories and paint at the same time. I did take some summer classes in drawing years ago, but I always tell people that drawing is in my blood. I have had my art studio in Copenhagen and in London for more than 4 years now.
