What drives my work, is a constant search for fresh ways of exploiting colour and pattern in the material.
Educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2005 with additional studies at Rhode Island School of Design in USA, I focus on the surface of our surroundings. I believe that objects made with diligence and care, has a higher probability of reproducing a similar behavior among people.
Before setting up my design studio in Copenhagen in 2013, I worked as a printing assistant at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, USA, followed by seven years as textile designer in the French fashion company EPICE, developing colours and patterns, and overseeing production in India.
In addition to running my own studio, I am part of the duo Included Middle together with furniture designer Chris L. Halstrøm.
