Since my photography study, I work as a dog photographer which connected me to many wonderful people and their lovable furry friends. Photographing dogs gives the opportunity to – however small- see and create a bit of beauty for the world. But life isn’t a straight path. It’s twisting and turning and sometimes it takes an unexpected turn.

A few years ago I was very hungry for both sharing and creating in a different way. First I got a teachers degree and after that a master degree in Illustration and graphic design. In my master year, I traveled North for an experiment in solitude, made a graphic novel about it, graduated and… moved north to Sweden. My work is influenced by both light and shadow, searching and being lost. The beauty of nature and the complex human mind.

 

I would like to invite you to take part in this journey, to join the adventures and to create.

If you have any comments, thoughts or ideas for collaborations, feel free to contact me through this page, on Facebook or Instagram.
