Trädhjärta (Tree heart) is my first novel, published by Natur&Kultur in Sweden. It is a story of love, religion and a young girl’s disappearence, all set in my hometown of Norrköping in the 1970s.
Everybody loves fika! The Swedish way to enjoy everyday life. Coffee or tea, with a sandwich, or a biscuit or a piece of cake. Can be enjoyed at any point, but it is something you do together with friends or family. These are new designs for greeting cards and posters.
Good Mornings/ Octopus publishings
I was approached by Octopus publishing to illustrate this lovely book by Linnea Dunne. It was a really joy to create such simple, uplifting illustrations for this project.
DC Network Children's books
These are new designs for greeting cards and posters. Some of them are also studies for wallpaper and textile prints.
Sven and Bobsy
I have created a couple of characters that I really love and who are popping up in different stories and comics. Sven and Bobsy are best friends and they love to hang out, argue and go on adventures together. The illustrations are inspired by country life in Sweden. Sven and Bobsy build airplanes, set up garage sales, get lost while picking mushrooms in the forest and invite anyone who is alone to spend Christmas with them. They are funny and happy and sad and inventive. Like children.
Alla dör (Everybody dies)
This is a sample from the children's book Alla dör (Everybody dies) out on Olika Publishing on the 2nd of May 2015. The story is written by Jesper Lundqvist. The illustrations are made by using watercolours and ink. They show a diverse group of children, funny, furry animals, grief struck adults and all kinds of creatures at the end of their life. The book is for 3-6 years olds and the images serve to start a conversation regarding life and death and how it is not such a bad thing that everything has to end.
These are a selection of the images created for Age UK for a leaflet called “Let’s talk about death and dying”. Despite the title, both text and images are joyful and positive. It was a treat to be part of this brilliant project.
Things that grow
These illustrations are a selection of images created for Anfang Advertising and Etcetera Design, for a cookbook which was nominated to the Swedish publishing award.
Tell us a story
Abike (the Guardian, the Observer)
This is part of a bigger comics- project commissioned by the Guardian, and the Observer. Together with Positive Negatives, we told a story based on a woman's real experience of trafficking and sexual abuse. It was a heart breaking project, but one I am so proud to have been part of.
