    'Many of my objects attempt to combine the poetic and personal with the political. Natural environments often feature in my imagery and my objects frequently play with scale. A lot of the installations and objects are made of found materials, which have been arranged in a new context. My work sometimes appears sketchy, which is a deliberate interest in the immediate rather than the refined object.'

    'I was born in Sweden in 1977, and I live and work in London. I was educated at Wimbledon College of Art. My practice is process and research led and my work takes the form of drawing, painting, performance, video, sculpture and installation. I am interested in history of ideas and psychology, in particular the relation between the unconscious and conscious in artistic expression. I have experimented with different methods to get at intuitive drawing, enable 'accidents' and make use of these. The inspiration for this investigation has been everything from earlier artists working with traces of action, action painting and automatic writing to how small children draw. Later works have been concerned with communication, traces of action, and the artist's mark.
