Agency and Comic Art Studios
I am an artist living in Malmö, Sweden. I work with comics, illustration, painting and graphic/web design. I got my art degree at Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway, where I mostly worked with animation and sculpture, but have since returned to my comics roots. I am currently working on the graphic novel ”Once Upon a Time in Morningside”, written by Sean Michael Wilson, to be published in 2013.
I am as an artist versatile and able to adjust my technique to the needs of the project. I have drawn in many styles, in for example Disney and Moomin style, realistically as well as more iconic. I pencil, ink, letter and colour. I am a classically trained painter as well as a self-taught digital artist.
