Hi and welcome!

View more work at!

Being an anthropologist by education (symbolism in storytelling the main topic of my studies), and adoring the Jugenstil and Pre- Raphaelites in style and image choice, my work defines itself by strong images, centered around one person or animal. I mostly prefer to work with traditional paint and drawing methods in my first design. I can and do use computerprogramms when it fits the project I am working on.

Inspirations come, amongst other things, from anime, manga, gaming, books and movies.

As it is, with each work I create, I learn. Working together with someone, and bringing their visions to life, increases the learning level even more.
