I´m a mother of two small children and an almost stay at home mom. I have a wonderful husband that supports me. I live in the north of Sweden where winters bring a lot of snow, cold temperatures, down to – 30 c, and only a few hours of daylight. Summers it is light around the clock. I was born and raised in the south of Sweden in Gothenburg a city by the ocean.
My beginning trade was cabinetry. I still have a few furniture pieces that I made but it has been a long time since I worked with wood.
Crafting has always been part of my life and I’ve been enjoying polymer clay off and on for over 20 years, I´m trying to open people’s eyes in Sweden to great possibilities of polymer clay. I love polymer clay because when I get “bored” I can change the technique but I don´t have to change the medium.
I always keep my eyes open for inspiration around me and even as a first grader I was late to school every single day because i always seemed to find something on the way that caught my attention like a lizard or a flower. Drove my mom crazy as the teacher was not happy, my mom sent me earlier and earlier to school but it did not help, inspiration is everywhere, what can I say. My daughter has caught the creativity bug so I think I will walk her to school when the time comes.
