I grew up in Sweden with a very close connection to nature and as a result nature has come to be my greatest inspiration. I have always been a collector and cannot help picking up things from the ground, taking photographs and noticing all the little details in the forest, on the beach or on the street.
I enjoy both the small details and the patterns and forms that make up larger structures in the natural world, the micro and the macro. Sometimes the physical objects I collect become part of my jewellery as they are or through casting; other times the forms I see inspire me to make my own versions in materials such as wax or metal. I enjoy working intuitively with materials and through experimentation they guide me to new forms.
I have a BA of Visual Arts (Jewellery and Object) from Sydney College of the Arts, Australia. With a stop back in Sweden in between I now live in San José, Costa Rica. Being a traveller and having lived in many countries I have many places to long and belong to, at times challenging but also great source of inspiration and life experience.
