About Me I am based in Stockholm, Sweden. I live in a treehouse, tucked into the branches of an oak tree, and with pink roses climbing around the doorway.
About My Designs I’m an artist (illustrator, surface pattern designer, painter) writer and teacher. Everything I create comes from a sense of wonder, that brings a sensuous joie de vive to my art. Colour and I have an endless love affair! The result is a bold and expressive, funky and clean aesthetic.
My Source of Inspiration Magic, transformation, Scandinavian design, nature, history, distortion, futurism, distortion, fusion, mythology and magnified moments.
Typical for designs from
my country
Josef Frank, Marimekko, Alvar Aalto, and Stig Lindberg are some of the Scandinavian designers who I am inspired by. I'm also inspired by William Morris, Liberty and art deco tiles.
Besides patterns I design I paint, illustrate and make patterns. When I am not designing, you can find me balcony gardening, in a thrift store, travelling, at a museum, cooking, learning or dreaming up something new.
