  • Why did you decide to become an artist?
    • It just kind of happened. I’ve been drawing properly since I was about twelve and never really stopped. I decided to start treating it as more of a profession only recently.
  • What artists have influenced you?
    • I’m definitely influenced by John Bauer, a Swedish artist who painted a lot of folk stories. My favorite artists of all time are Claude Monet and William Turner. It doesn’t always translate into my own art, of course, since I work in many different mediums.
  • What are your hobbies and interests?
    • I am studying filmmaking with a focus on writing, I’d like to become a screenwriter or showrunner. I think it all boils down to storytelling with my art, writing, and filmmaking. They are all different ways of telling stories. 
  • What is your favorite work of art?
    •  I like the painting of Ophelia. Not only is it a beautiful painting. You can read so much to the story in it, even to the things that aren’t in the actual play of Shakepeare’s Hamlet
  • What inspires you?
    • Music is one of the biggest inspirations for me. It is able to paint me pictures without using any kind of physical means. Another thing is weather, especially thunder, rain and storms. Finally I get inspired by mythical, historical and scientific things. Different mythologies with their amazing stories, worlds and creatures, and the cultures they come with, are a great source of inspiration. Which can be seen in Legends of Norse Mythology, which I used the mythology of the old Norse as a major inspiration.
