my story

I like new challenges.

To work with design is great!

Today I work as a consultant with clients in different categories in a wide range of projects. From print, exhibitions, conceptual images, graphic illustrations to patterns and web design.

To work with design is fantastic! I strive to work in an organic and free way – always with the clients best at heart.

When I was little I had a hard time doing nothing thus I always had a project going on, like drawing, sewing or creating something… this made me want to search for a job that had the element of creativity so I studied Graphic Design and Art Direction at Berghs and Advertising and fashion at Beckmans.

Now I have more than 20 years of experience as a Graphic Designer at for ex Espri, Ekelund&Wik and as an Art Director at Talent Talk.

As one of 4 founders of PictureMyLife I work, among other things, with the development of our product when it comes to user experience and the visual design. We make digital communication tools for children, young people and adults with special needs and thus focusing a great deal on usability. We want to give everyone the possibility to communicate on their own terms.

I started my journey as self employed by making patterns for interior design. I then altered my focus and goal. The goal became to be able to work with a variety of design projects and I am happy to say that it is what I do now 🙂

With enthusiasm I look forward to new exciting projects!
