I also do live painting sessions at events or companies.  

My artistic background

I have always painted and early on in life received a broad training in various artistic fields such as sculpture, book binding, woodwork, textile techniques and forging of various metals.


Since my training at The Florence Academy of Art in Italy I have painted off and on, using many different techniques. I have, however, not had painting as part of my profession until 2016, when I had reached a point where I wanted to take my realistic painting further. I have gradually established myself as a painter focusing on traditional drawing and oil painting. 

My passion lies in painting people - interpreting the world around me through my paintings. Most of my compositions involve people, though I also very much enjoy landscapes and still lives.

Rendering people working with what they love, or surrounded by object that have meaning in their lives, is something that inspires me a lot. It is timeless, but it also mirrors the time we are living in right now. I work a lot with portrait commissions of various kinds, and a new technique that I have developed recently is live painting sessions where I depict people at events or at their workplaces or in their homes.

Along side with my painting I teach literature, writing and theatre at Kristofferskolan in Stockholm.
