ABOUT MAUD

I have often described what I do as spiritual art.
Spirituality for me is what I exoerience when I stop and calm myself on the inside… that I am part of something larger than myself.
The words describing what that larger is I often find to be cosmetics.

With my art I am seeking what that larger is, to me. I use visual language like angels, magical signs, mysterious guardians, legends and archetypes as clues that take me inwards – to the silence and calmness within me. Beyond politics, newsflow, bills, and work.

A place where I can just be, where I can experience more and find more of myself. A simpler place and at the same time a deeper and more present place.

The images speak to the silence within you if you let them. What they communicates to you is deeply personal and unique to you.
Thank you for stopping by and giving them some time.

**********
Jag har ofta beskrivit det jag gör som andlig konst.

Andlighet för mig är det jag upplever när jag stannar upp och lugnar mig på insidan... Att jag är en del av något större än mig själv. Orden som beskriver vad det där större är upplever jag ofta som kosmetika.
Med mina bilder söker jag efter vad det är.

Jag använder bildspråk som änglar, magiska tecken, mystiska väktare
Legender och arketyper som ledtrådar inåt till tystnaden och lugnet inom mig. Bortom politik, nyhetsflöden, räkningar och jobb.

En plats där jag bara kan vara, där jag kan uppleva mer och finna mer av mig själv. En enklare plats och samtidigt djupare och mer närvarande.

Bilderna talar till tystnaden i dig om du tillåter dem. Vad de förmedlar till dig är högst personligt och unikt för dig.
Tack för att du stannar upp och ger dem lite tid.

-------------------------
I experiment and use a lot of different tools in my art. Photographs, acrylic paint, board, canvas, wood, paper, textile, fine art prints, photoshop, ipad, iphone, different apps, colormedias, I use whatever I have in hand at the moment. And I love it, gives me a sense of freedom.



SAGT OM MIN KONST - SAID ABOUT MY ART

Maud’s art work captures the essence of the visionary experience; expansive, evocative and filled with an ideal balance of both light and dark – the nature of one’s inner life and the nature of reality itself. When I was looking for cover art for “The Shaman’s Heart II”, I was immediately drawn to Maud’s “Gathering” series and knew that this was the one! It is a wonderful expression of shamanic ritual and visionary experience.
- Byron Metcalf, Award-winning recording artist & shamanic practitioner

Your works are what i call the real art, the choice and the harmony of colors are all awesome my friend..when the word comes to the themes that you have painted i am speechless because they are all filtrated from a higher soul and wisdom..as a sufi i was so effected with all your works...i wish your success will continue to grow grow and grow,and enlighten the future...my fantastic precious friend..
- Caner Jeweler von Royals

"...the energy in the classroom from all Maud's paintings with Channeled art that has been in place all the days have been ... awesome ...!"
-Anders Wallin, Inner Power Centre

"There is an epic sense of iconographical grandeur to your work, Maud that makes one feel they are in the presence of something holy - which they are."
-C Matt Foley

"För mig symboliserar tavlan att jag är ett med Världsalltet och att jag innehar en egen, inre gudomlighet."
-M. Högsander

"Your images reveal a heightened sense of personal style that is both proactive and mysterious...."
-Agora Gallery, New York
