Born and raised in the north of Sweden I have gone through life with a pencil in my hand. Since 2013 Im running my own business, working full time as a freelance designer in Umeå, where I also live. My coloring books has been translated into several other languages can be found in bookstores and online all over the world and right now Im working on a new book, Själsfränder, that will be released in Sweden in March 2019. I also have an ongoing collaboration with Ravensburger and have made two puzzle designs for them and more are to come.
I draw all of my illustrations by hand, pen and paper is what I prefer, and I love to draw magical, strong women, gems, jewelry, flowers, forests and animals with lots of details. I find most of my inspiration in the nature around me and looking back in history to time periods/arts that I like. I often also add dreamlike elements to my illustrations, its that place, between dream and reality, that I like to capture and visualize when I draw.
Besides coloring books I make illustrations and patterns for interior design, wallpaper and textiles but also for magazines and companies.
Sometimes I paint walls and make jewelry too. In my portfolio you can catch a glimpse of some of the commissions, personal illustrations and patterns I have made. If you have any questions or if you want me to do some work for you, feel free to contact me at: email@example.com or
