Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am originally from Sweden but I'm currently living in Australia. I was really into skiing growing up in Sweden—but I found surfing when I was about 15—that really got me hooked. I moved to Australia in 2002 to combine studying design at a University with surfing as much as I could. I’m still here, on the freshwater Northern Beaches of Sydney. I love it for many reasons—a strong community feeling, a fun surf beach, and you can walk to almost everything you need.
How did you get your start as an artist?
I have always been drawing since I was a kid, and I never really stopped. There were periods of time where I did not draw much, but in the last 5 years, I came to the realization I could do it for a living! It was never something that I thought I could do, I always liked to draw but never imagined that I would do it as a job. It is something that I am extremely grateful for and appreciate it daily.
How would you describe your style?
I try to leave that to others, mostly because I find it a bit tricky to describe. I would say it is my view on the outdoors and surfing in particular, because spending time in nature doing fun things is the best thing there is.
