Tell us a bit about yourself, where did you grow up, and when did you realize you were a creative person?
I grew up in a small town in Småland (in the South of Sweden). When I was young I was very shy and insecure and had a feeling that I was a creative person but I didn't have the courage to express it. But in my early twenties I decided to start an art education at Folkhögskolan and there I started to bloom, I found the textile crafts and just kept on going.
My main craft education I got at my three year studies at Handarbetets Vänner School in Stockholm.

"To be chosen to receive this year's Fine Little Day Art Award is such an honor. It feels like getting a big hug. Keeping up with my art and my craft is the best I know and that my work is noticed in this way makes me extremely happy. I am really excited and I will continue to weave!"
