Born and raised in a multicultural municipality by the border of Finland in the Northern hemisphere, my childhood was very much influenced by winter, spectacular landscapes and natural phenomenon like the northern lights and the midnight sun. This has brought life to and inspired mystical stories about animals, nature and supernatural beings that have been shared between generations.
This upbringing is manifested in my work and esthetics. My design practice is heavily influenced by my upbringing in Northern-Norway, where these forms of expressions are woven into a modern esthetic, thematically and
materialistically. As a designer and storyteller I explore materials, textures, contrasts, cultural and personal memories, and try to navigate between different perspectives with needle and thread as my traveling tools.
