The Horse and Rider is one of the most important themes in my work. I am influenced by old Swedish carvings of horses, from African wood carvings, from Italian artist Marino Marini and of course from the great Chinese ceramics of horses. I associate the journey of life with horses and their riders.  For me it is significant that at every plateau in my life I create another horse and rider. ‘Arrival’ came at a time when I felt I had arrived at the top of a mountain. The hard slog of the climb surpassed by the calm and glorious victory of arriving, the view splendid, and the possibilities, endless.
