I am 51 years old and live in the lovely village Klovborg in Denmark, which is close to the Jutland ridge near the Kings Jelling, where the kings of the Vikings ruled over most of Europe and England for centuries. Many have probably not discovered this little gem where I live, but the place deserves much more attention.
I am educated primary school teacher with, among other things, line subjects in visual arts and have a past as an advertising designer/desktop
I won my first draw competition already as a 13 year old and sold my first drawings in the same year.
I work p.t. as a teacher of visual arts and design and also teach privately in drawing for beginners and advanced. I also make youtube videos by the name; Draw with Ole and teach as a online instructor on Skillshare
All my works are therefore made in my spare time. I have drawn and painted portraits all my life and the study of faces, shapes has become an obsession for me, which manifests itself in a need to express itself in colors and lines.
I consider myself most of all as a craftsman seeking the stage over the actual craft, that can be realized in what is called art. I am constantly in search of the perfect, so perfect that it has the imperfect stroke and lightness.
