About me

***

I was born on the Swedish west coast, the part of Sweden that I still find the most beautiful (the textile artwork "Björnsängen" in my portfolio is inspired by the most beautiful beach in Sweden), but I moved north to Umeå in order to attend med school. I graduated in 2008 and was licensed 2010, and my plan was to stay in Umeå and become a specialist in Pulmonary diseases. But the cosmos wanted something else.

A week after I was licensed, a Swedish dating site had a glitch, and showed me a man who lived in Umeå, and the man was showed a woman from Stockholm. When we finally realised that we lived 7 hours by car from each other, we had both already fallen heads over heel, and I moved to Stockholm 6 months later. I am now married, has 2 children, and a resident in General Practice. Life is funny sometimes!

I am eternally grateful that my life took this turn, but it is not free from speed bumps and obstacles. I suffer from physicians burnout, and we have a child who is not neurotypical, and who is incredibly demanding.

Sometime in all this struggle, I found art and creativity as a way to relax my brain, to allow it complete freedom of expression. I love trying new things, techniques that I haven't tried before, materials that are odd and unusual. I guess it is because I perceive myself as odd and unusual, something that I really like about myself.

I’m also eccentric, kinky, and a little weird. Most people like me, either because or despite of all of that.

I tend to easily get excited about things, and I have a curiosity that never rests. I love learning new hobbies, and I am fortunate enough to have a whole room at home dedicated to my art and crafts. I am addicted to looking at other artists and crafters on Instagram and Pinterest – I think it is so incredibly awesome that all these beautiful different creations are out there, and I’m fascinated by the people creating them. Maybe you are one of them?
