Born in Sweden almost 45 years ago I grew up in an artistic family with a dad who was an artist, and a grandfather who was a jewellery maker.
My training as a traditional artist was done by the acclaimed landscape artist Larz Friberg, who was also a good friend of our family. He taught me everything he knew about how to paint landscapes and wild animals.
Today I use my computer for most paintings I do, but I will probably never leave the canvas behind completely. I like the smell of oil paint, it’s that easy.
I do airbrushing (using Photoshop CS3 & Wacom tablet) and also 3D renders when I feel like a struggle with Vue 6 xStream.
Lately it’s been more digital painting than anything however.
When I don’t paint, draw or work, I make Steampunk jewellery and I’ve got my own line for sale at Steampunk Box which is my store.
I also sell via auctions on eBay to make it more fun ;)
I live in England today after doing a lot of travel in the past. I’m a graphic designer and make my living from the web developing business that I share with a partner.
I’ve got a grown up son and I will be a Granny in spring 2009 :)
