I show my CV in pictures, partly because I think it says more – I am an image-seeing individual – and partly because I have no education to link to my work. On my page “about me” – regarding education – I refer to genes – my grandfather Kalle – who was a self-learning man. It has definitely suited me to be alone when I am creative … I am driven mainly by my desire – to realize what is invisible to me, to make it visible – that is the simple explanation!
My artistic expression is, through life, a reflection of where I just then / now been / am. I have been busy with the creative process since I was 21 years old. The times in life the process has faded, so too has my zest for life diminished. Yes, it is also a short summary of everything that is life & personality. I have despite the above prologue actually taught painting part time for about 4 years… but the last six months the students had me as a still life steleben, lying on a table… it was not because of laziness, just so weakened by the context.

The New Language!
”Picture Letters”, The New Language!
– after a year of struggling with simple sketched lines all over
the walls in her studio, over and over… at least five times and each time tearing
it down – I got in contact with something holy… an inner
language! Slowly she could find stories to tell again… her work developed, and
has done ever since. Some of my work during the years after 1983 are
heavily dependent upon ”The Picture Letter”.

The interlude work
Zeppa was invited to the grafitti projekt, ”Everwanting Streets” at Röda Sten
in Gothenburg, and chose to take part with the interlude work.
for a while Zeppa was very fascinated by different small celebrity doll lookalikes … and had to put them in some sort of context.

The portrait project
I ´m starting this year to create clothes!
… very good exercise in “having a blast” on the surface!
. while doing the dress to carmens dans
I did not see it coming! So I thought, but later on, when I did reflect over this phenomena I relized that there had been a long inner journey to give birth to this creations. When I was 14 years old I was dertement to be a designer… but at 15 years old, something very prefound happend and I did cut my clothes to pieces… I just had to!
