My chief inspiration is the human figure. I play with different ways of comunicating feelings and states of mind through the body. To interact and use your own body with my sculptures is something I find especially exciting and rewarding since it often makes people engage with the sculptures in a playful way. I often use intuition when I start sculpting or drawing, I get a clear image in my head of what I want to express. The way I sculpt is based on a figurative academic training that I modify in various ways, for example through playing with scale and porportion.
I have studied, lived and worked with sculpture in Italy, New York City and London. I sculpt in clay and granite and cast in plaster, jesmonite and bronze.
I studied sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy and I have a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University in Gothenburg, Sweden. I have been collaborating with the artistic foundry Art´ù in Florence and I have also been sculpting for Madame Tussauds production in London. Collaborating with artists in Italy, America, The UK, Sweden and Ireland has enriched me as a person and it inspires me to have a multicultural aproach when I create my work. I currently live and work on the West Coast in Sweden.
