"Art, handcraft and illustration has their own worlds and I like to be in all of them. I have a background as a professional potter and have worked with woodfired stoneware sculptures for many years. Now I mainly work with charcoal drawings in big scales. I get trigged by limits. Fascinated by semiotics. I work in my own studio and I am a headteacher at Örebro Artschool."
