I was born in 1978 in Karlstad, Sweden, where I also grew up. I fell in love with France as a teenager, and have since the age of twenty been living between the two countries.

Making art is for me a way of handling the complexity of our existence.

I paint portraits mainly in oil and acrylics, hoping to awaken the viewer’s curiosity about the person’s inner life, as a reminder that we never know where a person comes from, hence should not judge him/her.

I also make abstract paintings and drawings in acrylic colour or charcoal, creating new worlds where we can wander for a while, and get in touch with our feelings without the limitations of known objects and surroundings.

My artistic education comes mainly from L’atelier des Passerelles in Paris and the Academy of fine arts Kunstgut in Berlin.
