My fondest memories growing up was visiting the shores, lakes and forests around my house in Sweden.
Nature had a big impact on me as a child and fueled an interest to use it as a big canvas of
inspiration for my previous work, while discovering my voice.
1996 was the year I decided to move to Boston, MA, to study photography. I desired to deepen my
knowledge, develop my skills and feed my curiosity about art, connection, communication and exploring
life. Today, I choose to use the fabric of nature or human bodies as my brick & mortar foundation
while pushing photographic boundaries. I love the challenge of exploring traditional film photography
and digital skills. Combined with artistry in darkroom skills, I create images that have feeling,
depth and texture.
Currently I am living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a lifestyle as an inspired,
creative being. As a photographer and teacher, I work with others to help them find their creative
voice. I have exhibited my photography in Europe, USA and Asia and my work can be found in various
collections throughout the world.
