Short biography

Born in Stockholm, Sweden 1958. I now live and work in the north part of Sweden.

After I finished art school oil painting was my main tool for many years.
I started to work with different printmaking techniques 1997 in traditional ways and experimentally with means and methods. Since 2009 I focus on photo based intaglio (non toxic printmaking using photopolymér film) and digital print and also collagraph.

2001 and 2005-2008 I was responsible for the printmaking program and head teacher in
printmaking at two different art schools in Sweden.
 

Studied photo journalism at Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall 2010.

I organize and run workshops/courses in printmaking for professional artists and art students.
In Nairobi, Kenya I organized and run workshops during my artist in residency stay 2013,
to introduce intaglio printmaking for artists in Kenya.

Participate in group exhibitions and have solo exhibitions in Sweden and abroad.
I work with art and exhibition projects, my own projects and projects I have been invited
to participate in.

Now and then I work with writing and photography assignments, articles/reviews/
reportage about art and art projects, published on art sites on the web and in art
magazines.

I am a member of The Swedish Printmakers Association.
