I am a trained interdisciplinary artist working as a freelance illustrator. I am also doing lectures about visual storytelling for Den Kulturelle Skolesekken, libraries, schools etc.

I do things as editorial- and book illustration, posters, record artwork, portraits and comics. Most of my work I do digitally, with an Apple Pencil on the iPad — a device that lets me draw and colorize on the go and basically everywhere.

When not doing commissions I make misc. drawings (of monsters, robots, slice of life situations) and fanzines, do walks with no purpose; read; watch movies; listen to music; travel or drinks coffee. Like — too much coffee.

Speaking of coffee: If you like my work, and would like some personal drawings, prints etc., consider buy me a coffee!
