From the Swedish countryside of Värmland, living in an old disused mental hospital, I craft unique stories with every one of my clippings, daily sketches and intricate collages.
Influenced by visionaries like Hilma af Klint and Carl Gustav Jung, I depict the depths of the human psyche. Diving into my subconscious and emerging with hand cut symbols from dreams, the images become reflections of my inner worlds.
-2011 I exhibited myself in a glass coffin at Värmland’s museum. A metaphor for my personal near death experience and restart in life. -2014-18 Deeply involved in the start-up of a daycare centre, for peolpe with mental disabilities, all captured in a Swedish TV series with the artist Lars Lerin, Lerins lärlingar SVT.
“I see every clipping I choose as a symbol originated from my subconsius mind. My artistic work is a constant ongoing analytical therapy.”
Born and raised in the countryside of Sundborn, Sweden, 1979.
