I’m an illustrator from Stockholm who creates fashion and beauty-related illustrations for commercial use as well as private clients. 


Interesting faces, female shapes, poses and nature inspire me, as well as cities where I’ve lived, like Stockholm, Paris and London.

When I create illustrations I’m always passionate about experimenting with different mediums. I always start off by putting a pencil on a piece of paper. I then continue with whatever comes naturally that day. It often involves ink, watercolour and sometimes pastels, acrylic or cut paper. In the final step, Photoshop and Illustrator make my illustrations ready for print and screens.


I was taught life drawing, graphic design and illustration at the Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion and The Royal Drawing School in London. I also have a Master of Science in Business and Economics from Lund University.

I'm currently taking care of my baby part-time, so I'm grateful for some extra patience while waiting for my response.
