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.

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

A new year, new hopes and wishes. What will 2016 bring? Like most other years, both good and bad. I need to remember that bad things that happen in the world doesn´t mean that all is bad, and that I can do much in my own little world and for the people around me, by […]
