CURRENT PROJECT: The Linen Collection for Boråstapeter. Linen-textured wallpaper with a colour scheme of 33 shades. A bright, tactile collection of plain colour wallpaper inspired by nature in tones that follow the slow changes of the seasons.
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME: Creative, spontaneous and multifarious.
INSPIRED BY: Nature. I love seeing how it burgeons and grows. I delight in the changes that the seasons bring.
PERSONAL MOTTO: Karin Boye's lines in her poem "In motion". The sated day is never first. The best day is a day of thirst.
ROLE MODELS: Louise Bourgeois and her tremendous impulse to express herself visually throughout her life. I'm inspired by artists who are not afraid to tread their own paths.
ON THE WALLS IN MY HOME: I have William Morris' Willow wallpaper on the walls of the kitchen in my summer cottage. The beautiful sand-coloured tone complements my old iron stove very nicely. A foliage pattern that is growing on the wall. I also have Trapez by Arne Jacobsen from the Scandinavian designers collection. Otherwise, different shades of grey and white.
LIKES: Patterns, architecture and cultivation. I'm fascinated by the repetition and rhythm in patterns.
HIDDEN TALENT: Swimming.
OTHER DESIGN CREATIONS: Hand-tufted rugs, woven upholstery fabrics and printed textiles for public settings. In the past, I've worked at Almedahls and Ljungbergs Factory.
IN FIVE YEARS' TIME: I greatly enjoy working as a designer at a factory, where the proximity to the production process is rewarding. I develop grades, select colours and work on pattern designs for different materials. Wallpaper, textiles and products.
