Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

The Backstage Weekly

We showed an exert from the Perplex-show to the media this week. It´s only a week until we open!
