My first time to participate in a large scale high quality art fair in Sweden was a remarkable experience. It was well organised with pristine Swedish efficiency and the organiser Ole Junert of Deeloopart Ltd was attentive to every need. His subtle reassuring presence along with fun like-minded weekend neighbours made this 3 day event a memorable one.

It really warmed my heart that so many strangers were drawn to my art especially the more intuitive pieces. To witness eyes light up and faces break open in smiles was uplifting. To have someone appreciate your art and give it a new home or commission a special piece makes all the painful stages of the creative process so worth while.
