About

Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world.

I'm eccentric with both feet deeply rooted in graphic design and a heart that beats for illustration. I'm a designer and that's what I always wanted to be. Except from an painter or a veterinary, but as soon as I figured out that there is no money in being a painter (unless your last name is Picasso) and that I actually had to cut in animals if I chose to be a veterinary, I decided to be a designer. Luckily I liked it!

I mostly work with print production and I've done everything from magazines, catalogues, bags, posters in all various formats, flyers, invitations, bill boards, brochures, packaging and stickers to textile prints, graphic identities and child book illustrations. My other professional areas are social media and css.

I currently work as a Graphic Designer and Print Coordinator at Molekylen and I used to work as an Art Director/Graphic Designer at GameStop Sweden. Former employee at Stafett Advertising Agency where I worked as a designer and illustrator. Studied Design and Visual Communication at Malmö University for three years and I went to art school for one year.

Besides from design I'm a big fan of irony, black humor, music, beer, fashion and weird looking animals and I can bring a smile to most peoples faces.

Good days, good vibes and lots of love!
