Her work is featured in several private and public collections, and she is the recipient of several major grants and awards, among them the ten-year working grant of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.

Since 2007 she is the head of department/professor of the Jewellery Art department at HDK Academy of Design and Crafts Gothenburg University.

Statement

I collect real objects and images, seized from my daily surroundings. In fact, my studio is an endlessly growing collection of bits and pieces, both visible and invisible, that become parts of a map I keep updating and revising.
My work is a treasure hunt among things and ideas finally fashioning into pieces of jewellery made to be desired, worn, questioned or loved.
