I was born in 1990 into a very creative and loving family, always surrounded by different kinds of artistic material such as pencils, clay and watercolors. I've never been much of a city girl and my passion for the outdoors, dogs and hunting have followed me through my whole life. In my early years at kindergarten my friends used to draw princesses, meanwhile I created my first interpretations of hunting dogs and wild animals in their natural habitat...
After graduating school at the age of 18, I travelled a lot and spent one year abroad in Australia where I studied Graphic Design. I love visiting new places and Brisbane will always be my second home, but my heart belongs to the Scandinavian countryside. Me, my partner Magnus and our daughter live in a little red house located not far from a small town called Delsbo in the north of Sweden.
We have four hunting dogs, two German Longhaired Pointers and two Swedish moosedogs.
Hunting has always been a natural part of my life.Knowing that I don't take part in the industrial meat industry is very important for me. I love to spend my days outdoors in the mountains, just me and the dogs, creating memories and hopefully enjoy a nice meal afterwards.
My Kind of Art
I've been working as a professional wildlife & pet portrait artist since 2011, but my earliest signatures go back to 2006. The challenge of capturing the unique expression of every animal I paint is my biggest motivation, I have created hundreds of portraits and I never get bored..!
I use acrylics on canvas when I paint. Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. It is water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water (or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes) the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting.
The variety you can achieve with acrylic paint is endless and fits me perfect! It's so much fun.
My-mugs and tableware
Bring the outdoors inside!
The My-mug comes in eleven different motifs with matching plates. It is dishwasher safe and very durable as its made of stoneware instead of porcelain. We mount the decals one by one so each mug and plate will be unique and handmade. Using a ceramic oven, the decals will blend together with the glaze that goes on top of the stonewere and make it very lasting.
