A little about me....
I was born and raised in Småland, Sweden, very close to the "Glass Capitol" of Sweden (Orrefors, Kosta Boda and many others). Often I would take trips there, either school fieldtrips or with family and friends. Glass has always been a big fascination to me.
I started my lampworking career in August 1998 on Hawaii, where I was inspired by the very talented glass artists at gallery Maui Crystal, Lahaina.
Working with glass was such an amazing feeling. I was more creative with drawing and sculpting with clay while living in Sweden. The flow feeling of working hot glass had such and impact on me. I became addicted right away.
In 1999 I moved to the North Shore, Oahu and there continued as an apprentice for Krista Woodward at Oceans in Glass, Haleiwa. Another talented artist to learn from.
2001 I started my own studio inTraverse City, Michigan and 2005 moved to the Gulf coast of Alabama. After 7 1/2 years in AL, I moved to Sweden with my husband and our two children.
Here we live in Västervik, surrounded b thousands of islands by the amazing archipelago.
