Love Acrylic Paint Markers

I have started a new adventure this autumn, and it’s taking some of my mental space to digest everything about it. I won’t reveal what it is just yet, but if something comes of it I’ll let you guys know of course! And if I’m not here, know that I am elsewhere being creative. In […]

365 Collages | Week 15 | Made in China

365 Collages | Week 15 | Made in China

These collages are not “Made in China” of course, they are made by me here in Sweden. But they’re inspired by Chinese writings and graffiti on the wall. I hope you enjoy! Isolation is aloneness that feels forced upon you, like a punishment. Solitude is aloneness you choose and embrace. I think great things can […]

Experiments with acrylic paint | smooch, rub, lift

Monoprinting Experiments

Monoprinting Experiments

I’ve been watching a few fun videos about how to use a gel printing plate. I’m not sure what makes such a thing special or if it’s sold here in Sweden but I just imagined any surface where the paint wouldn’t stick would work… So I took out a big white piece of tile that […]

Getting her hooked

Getting her hooked

If you haven’t tried a Semla yet you really need to hop on a plain right now – and come to Sweden to try one. They are delicious, especially as we swedes (mostly) eat them only in February while waiting for spring. A semla consists of a cardamom-spiced wheat bun which has its top cut […]
