You will receive this newsletter 5 times a year with updates and inspiration.

I am a member and board member of Svenska Tecknare (the Association of Swedish Illustrators and Graphic Designers)

and a member of Illustratörcentrum (Sweden’s largest agency for illustrators and graphic designers)

and of SAVVA (Swedish Animation and Visual Arts, association)

 

I always loved to draw. I love to draw characters. Like many others, I began to draw what I saw. But, I slowly started to add or subtract things and people into my drawings, mixing reality with imagination. I realized that I had found the perfect way to communicate. It was then I decided that this is what I wanted to do,

communicate through art. For me, visual expression has much stronger impact than just textual communication. To communicate, we need both.

After graduating from the Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, (2004) I started my business and has freelanced since.
