“I’ve always worked from home. I’ve moved a lot and my atelier follows me wherever I go. I’m in a flat in the Eastern area of Copenhagen now. I find that there’s a certain intimacy to working at home.
It’s a space where I feel free and can be at ease. I always do my work seated on the floor. I think it’ll always be like that. No matter how small a space I’d end up in, there’ll always be room for a piece of paper on the floor.
Most crucial to me though, is that I’m alone with my work. Working from home gives me a feeling of control that, over time, allows me to immerse myself completely into whatever I’m working on. In that sense, I believe that our surroundings affect as just as much as our thoughts do.
Some need visual stimulation to feel inspired and I’m the same way, though what I find the most inspiring is a large, white, naked wall. That sense of nothingness inspires me and allows me to dream up things in my mind to unfold on the canvas.”
