I have an MA in ANIMAGE (animation & illustration) from the Hochshule Luzern Design & Kunst in Lucerne, Switzerland. I also studied at the Royal College of Art, Craft & Design in Stockholm, Sweden. Recently I have taken courses in picture book making with the aim of writing and illustrating picture books.
I live and have my studio in Bergshamra, Sweden. I draw my illustrations by hand, then I scan, collage and color them in Photoshop.
