San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA. USA

I moved to Paris in the summer of 2012.

What does France mean to you?

Being a metropolitan and culturally multifaceted city, Paris makes me grow more nuanced and challenges me to claim my own space.

What does Sweden mean to you?

I’m privileged being born in Sweden. It means safety through the social welfare system and I have a place where I belong.

What inspires you the most and where does your inspiration come from?

I search for metaphors in my everyday surrounding that reflects my inner imagery.

How would you define yourself and/or your work?

I am introspective and my work is an outlet for that.
