I’m a jewelry artist, MFA in Applied Arts and Crafts at HDK in Gothenburg, Sweden. At first I wanted to be a painter, but after testing jewelrymaking and silversmithing I knew that metalsmithing was what I wanted to do. I started my own studio in 1994.

I have a great interest in plants and nature and that is the foundation of my artistic expression. To investigate shape, structure and patterns from nature is the starting point in my work and sometimes they represent human issues. I make my jewelry by hand from various materials depending on expression and function.

I design and make the jewelry in my studio in Skärhamn, Sweden and sell it at Konsthantverkarna in Stockholm, Konsthantverkarna in Karlstad, Galleri 31 in Skärhamn, in my webshop and in exhibitions.
