My Story

Born in 1978 and bred in Kalmar, Sweden.

In 1998 I moved to Stockholm. After 15+ years as an IT entrepreneur I decided to change path in life and pursue a life as a painter.

In 2014 I enrolled in the Swedish Academy of Realist Art in Stockholm to study classical drawing and painting. After one semester I made the move to Florence, Italy where I began studies at the Florence Academy of Art.

In 2018 I moved back to Sweden and Isola Gård on Öland. From here I run my company Isola Studios where I work on my own projects and teach art classes.
