Hello! I'm an illustrator and designer based in Malmö, Sweden. I grew up close to nature and the forests of Dalecarlia, before moving to Stockholm for a few years, where I received my bachelor’s degree in illustration and graphic design from Konstfack in 2017. 

Since graduating I've been working with editorial illustration for a wide variety of Swedish and international journals, magazines and newspapers, both in print and online. I've also worked on several book projects, painted a couple of painted, as well as various graphic design projects done with Bukett Grafik, the studio I run with my partner Erik. 

Topics especially close to my heart are ecology, social justice, music, film, literature and culture in general. Aside from my commissioned work, I also maintain an artistic practice where I primarily work with gouache painting and linoleum printing. Some of these end up as prints over at Bukett Butik.
