I am an artist, illustrator and animator based in Gothenburg, Sweden. I work with a playful analogue style in a range of media with physical paintings and drawings, stop-motion and cell animation, digital and analogue illustration, motion graphics, music videos, art direction and more.

I am a board member and regional representative for Illustratörcentrum and part of the artistic collective Koami a creative studio focused on the cross-pollination of art, technology and culture with exhibitions, talks and events.

This site is divided up between commercial work and art work but there is a good deal of overlap between the two. Here you can find a selection of recent and older work from both catagories. I am especially interested in themes to do with climate, nature and technology and how they effect each other and our environment.

Don’t forget to visit my online shop where you can buy original art and prints and follow my instagram for the latest work. I am always open for commisions, exhibitions and assignments so please get in touch.
