I am an illustrator and a surface pattern designer based in Stockholm, where I live with my family and our dog Hilla. I’ve been lucky to work with clients from around the world, making illustrations and patterns for children’s books, magazines, fabric, packaging, print, & more. I am also a graphic designer and worked for many years with non fiction- and text books for school. I’ve studied art history, visual communication, illustration and design theory at university and art school, I also went to part time photography school. I like to constantly evolve as an artist and take art classes as often as possible.

I always start with a pen and a sketchbook, I like using cut paper in my work process and often finish it digitally, enjoying the combination of random–hand–computer. I also draw in Procreate. I think a lot about colours. I find inspiration from everything, all the time but I especially enjoy trees, the forest, fashion, art and childrens drawings. Recently started to paint with gouache and hope to incorporate it more in my process.

Clients include:
Bonnier Carlsen, Arco Design, Uniqlo, Ogawa Linedrops, Kamawanu, Art Print Japan, Anorak Magazine, Hakuhodo, Hasami Yaki, Nishikawa, Liber AB, Natur & Kultur, Sekiguchi, Tesco Magazine. Exhibitions in Tokyo, Stockholm, London, Oxford.

I am a member of Svenska Tecknare – The association of Swedish illustrators and graphic designers, and SCBWI – The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
