Too clumsy to become a pilot, I started med school and stayed for like a bachelor and then some, not realizing I was climbing the wrong ladder.
A little star changed my world, and when I was lucky to become a mom again, I left that ladder without looking back.
While enjoying our kids, my love for calligraphy and letters grew into a business of handwriting and lettering on everything from invites and place cards, to eggs, stones, boats, balloons and a lot of Christmas balls.
As time went by, I built a reputation for creating special gifts, and during the making of a handwritten piece for our Crown Prince, my passion for posters caught fire.
I teamed up with the amazing poster company Permild & Rosengreen, where my posters are now available.
All designs are still handlettered, and if you follow me on Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook, you will be the first to know when a new piece is released.
Calligraphic art and design
Although I have moved on from one-off pieces to posters, handlettering and calligraphy is still the bedrock of all that I do. I have loved handlettering and calligraphy since I picked up a pen for the first time, and all designs are created by hand.
Black and white
To me staying within the black and white range contributes to an elegant, timeless look, being both modern and classic, feminine and masculine and compatible with other interior designs. The posters can be mixed to obtain a larger creation, and combined with black and white photos, apply an extra personal touch to the wall.
