Describe you and your work

I fell in love with photography as a teenager growing up in Sweden. My father gave me his old Minolta when I was sixteen and I took my first darkroom and photography class at Mullsjö Folkhögskola. I later earned an art scholarship to Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, Missouri, where I studied graphic design. This background still carries over into my artwork, with a strong focus on composition.
In Sweden, the connection to nature is an integral part of daily life and has therefore always been my greatest source of influence. It inspires me in a very peaceful and meditative way, similar to my creative process. I channel these emotions into my work by creating images that illustrate a sense of calm and reflection. By borrowing influences from analogue photography and by adding similar esthetic qualities and textures, I abstract the motif and blur the line between reality and imagination, the present and the past. I strive to create images with a sense of history, leaving you to create your own narrative.
