Artist’s Statement: There is a very important word in Danish, hygge (hoogah) that does not translate directly into English. The closest we can come is “cozy”. Hygge is an important concept in Denmark, where the winters are long and dark. Hygge is about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for friends and family. I try to capture this in my work by creating cozy and inviting spaces for viewers to dive into. I find I am increasingly inspired by the everyday and ordinary. I seek beauty in the mundane tasks and clutter of daily life-the little things we take for granted can mean the most, and I try to share that vision with other like-minded souls.
