MY BLOG



Here you can read about all the different things I am part of. Some tips and advertising. And sometimes something humerous!

After my performances in Seoul, as I showed on movie in my previous blog, Putte and I went to Japan for two weeks. There I made eight concerts together with choirs at every place under the conduction of Mr. Shinichiro Yamamoto, choir leader, composer, pianist and singer. A glimpse from these concerts and our trip you can watch in the movie above.

Then we continued our travel to Bangkok, Thailand. Mainly because I wanted to enjoy the best breakfast in the world and stay at the most cozy pool in the world on my 50th birthday. This is found at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit in Bangkok! I also wanted to visit the CCD, the Christian Care Foundation for Children with Disabilities, the Children's Home in Thailand with about 400 children with disabilities, which I support through my 'Lena Maria & Friends Foundation'. And one of the days in Bangkok we got a chance to go there. They sang to me and that was the nicest 50th birthday I could get!

Now that I had come all the way to Bangkok, I also made a charity concert to help CCD, that Mrs Pat Akkarasawart together with the Bridge Foundation arranged. There I had the great pleasure of singing a duet with Mr Benjamin James Dooley, a wonderful singer who works both in the pop world as well as in the opera world. Here is a small slide show with photos from the concert, an interview I made for the National TVchannel Thai TBS, (on facebook is an interview where Patrik answers some questions also), as well as the YouTube clip when James wins "the Voice Thailand" in the beginning of this year.

In high school we had a chance to practice a couple of weeks at a workplace, I guess to get a feeling how a regular job looked like. Mr Sune Fick who was a well known artist in my hometown agreed to let me come to his house and studio where he teached me how to paint in oil. It was a truly exciting experience and I learnt a lot. 
Mr. Fick was one of the Founders of the Mouth and Foot painters Association and he spoke so warmly about it and encouraged me to apply. So after a few years in 1990 I finally sent away some of my paintings to the jury and I was accepted. 
Since then the Association has become a bigger part of my life for each year that pass and I’ve got a lot of really good friends. I’m also very happy for the contact I have with many people who buy and enjoy our reproductions: cards and calendars etc. through the letters that I write three times a year together with our spring cards, Christmas cards and the yearly calendar that we send to a lot of households in both Sweden and Norway.
A few years ago I made a film about my painting together with my dear friend and excellent camera man Mr Johnny Lindgren. And I thought this special day on which our founding father Erich Stegmann passed away and to celebrate the wonderful legacy that he left us all that I want to post this blog and film.

My husband and I went this lovely summer day to Flättinge Farm Café and had lunch together. Today my grandfather would have turned 120 years old. He was born in 1898! Today, Putte and I also celebrate a year and a month as married. Flättinge Farm Café is a special place for us because it was here at this cafe we went and had coffee on our first day when we got together.
Life is filled with things to celebrate!

At the beginning of the summer, my mother filmed a bird's nest that they have just outside their kitchen window. It was time for the kids to leave the estate. I put the sequences together to one of my songs and put on Youtube.

In the fall this year it's time for a tour and performances in Japan. Here's a "promo movie".
