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. My coming coloring book, Smyckeskrinet, will be released in April 2018.
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 by 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 too. In my portfolio you can catch a glimpse of some of the commissions, personal illustrations and patterns I have made.
