//PROFILE
Living in Copenhagen I find inspiration in the city, in art and life around me. I work mainly within the fashion, food and lifestyle industries. Working with various materials and techniques I do both commercially strong graphic designs as well as more artistic prints and illustrations.

My interests include art, design, fashion, good food and great company.
