The artist

Can you tell us a bit more about your background and how you became an artist?
 I have always been interested in art but never found the right medium. As my interest in the Typhonian current grew I got an urge to express myself more than words in my magickal diary.

Which artists have inspired you in your creative process?
 I love the art of Steffi Grant. But when it comes to digital art I find the work of Matt Baldwin-Ives, Sarah-Jayne Farrer to
mention some people.

What is your creative process like and how has the occult been an inspiration when shaping you art?
My inspiration comes from reading the books of Kenneth Grant and from my own magickal work. Usually the urge to make something comes after a working, I get a picture in my head that needs to manifest. When it comes to music, Imaginos by Blue Oyster Cult is a real inspiration, a record that I return to over and over again.

Are you working certain concepts in mind or do certain images manifest while actively being involved in occult practices?
Usually most of the pictures is a result of magickal working, dreaming or reading.

What do you believe is a key element in creating a good composition? 
When you feel that the picture created fills up the urge or need that was created due to a magickal working. Sometimes it can take some time before I get it right.

What do you feel makes your work truly unique and your own?
I guess that since the images or the feelings has its origin in my imagination. Even though the symbolism may be Typhonian it expresses itself through me and that would make it unique.

How has your style changed over the years?
 I guess that the style may change over the course of time and the type of working I do.

Anything else you wish to share with our readers?
I’m glad and surprised that other people like the images that I make.
