  • Artist
  • Bangkok, Thailand

Born in 1989 in Denmark, I lived most of my life in Bangkok, Thailand before moving to London.

In 2007 I moved to London to study at the Wimbledon College of Art, part of The University of Arts London. With an FDA in Fine Art, I went on to do a BA (Hons) Technical Arts and Special Effects, from which I graduated in July 2011.

I have always had a strong opinion about the way things should look. For as long as I can remember I have been extremely fascinated with the way things work and how they can be improved - this curiosity has made me become a lover of problem solving.

My inspiration varies greatly, and there is no specific thing that my creativity stems from. Mechanics, science fiction, anatomny, elements in nature, creatures, insects and machines are just some of the things that influence me.
