Intro
In my work I focus on the connection, the connection to other people, connection to nature, connection to every breath.
Her main focus in her art work is using her personal experience in life and translate that into objects to wear or even wall pieces. As a maker she loves the freedom that is involved in her field. The different scale of work, varying from earrings to large scale neckpieces brings different challenges to the table.

The passion for making jewellery is based on this life experience. Its all about somehow transferring the feelings behind the experience into a tangible object that can perhaps be worn.
I once heard someone say: "The work most personal to the individual artist, tends to be the work that people will learn to appreciate the most." These words really stuck with me and lead me to
belief that in order to create something, people have to have passion and belief in the things they are doing or making. Therefore my work portraits a bit of myself: it mirrors actions, behavior, people, places, nature and feelings. It really does not make sense to be making something if I don't have interest or passion in what I am doing.
Ever since I was a kid, I have been going up North in Iceland to a special hideaway place where I go with my family every summer. This hidden gem has some sort of magic about it. The beach is full of driftwood,
sea shells, old shoes and interesting things that have been in the ocean for quite some time. The place has no electricity or hot water which makes it quite the contrast to city life. With nature at my doorstep and intersting things drifting ashore the place is ideal for processing thoughts and developing new ideas.
