Who are you?

I’m a Graphic designer and artist, from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark. Currently I’m working in both Copenhagen and San Francisco.

My palette is wide but basically I do everything you can think of that requires visual vitamins. I love to work collaboratively, and work in the intersection between art, interior, graphic design and design theory.

How did you get interested in art?

Like everyone else I was born an artist, and I just kept doing it.

My parents showed me plenty of art and helped me stay open minded to people and different cultures. I consider myself to be a free soul with a nice amount of my inner child still present.

How would you describe your style?

My style is colourful, sometimes very graphic, naive, playful and with hidden stories, as well as a touch of magic.

What are your sources of inspiration?

Very often I find inspiration in literature and music.

For some reason I also find lots of inspiration when I run. I guess my brain is in a very relaxed yet active mode.

Since my childhood I always had a crush on medieval art that I find very inspiring.

Who are your favourite artists?

I have so many favourite artists! For many years artists such as Henry Darger and Frida Kahlo have been dear to me.

I try to become more aware of less famous contemporary artists. I love the work of Martine Johanna, Camille Walala, Saner Edgar, Käthe Butcher just to mention a very few.

What would you really like to accomplish in the near future?

Within the next year I want to do a big public outdoor piece of wall art. In a big city... Anywhere in the world.
