What's your major interest in art?

Set design. Plus illustration and painting.

Is there something or some aspect that you want to add to your body of work in future?

Set design!

You were on vacation recently. Where did you go and how was it?

I went with a couple of friends to an island in Croatia called Brac. We rented a house by the sea and just stayed there the whole time. It was the best! I took a lot of pictures.

Do you sometimes find that pictures show things differently than you remember them?

Sometimes they show things that I don't remember at all.

Is there something you are tired of seeing photos of?

Female nudes. Why are people still making them?

A lot of your pictures on flickr show candid situations. Is this something you enjoy looking at in other photographers' works, too?

Candid pictures can be amazing as well as arranged photos can be really magic. I like both. But the "real" thing touches me more.
The feeling of looking through a peek hole into somebody’s world makes it exciting.

What does a perfect 3-course-meal consist of for you?

The house owner we rented from in Croatia came over one day and made us fresh, grilled sardines with his homemade olive oil. It was one of the best dinners i ever had. No appetizer or dessert was necessary.

Everything is a miracle or nothing is a miracle. Which one?


How long do you, in average, usually stay in a museum/gallery?

A few hours. But it depends on the size. I went to the Louvre for six hours and still didn't get to see everything.

How important is self-critique in art?

Very. Or else you might find yourself doing female nudes.

What is Stockholm like in summer?

Warm! All you do is go swimming and drink cold beer.

What is the cheesiest movie you can think of?

There are so many! But I’ll say Miss Secret Agent.

The Fantastic Mr. Fox?

I was a little disappointed when I saw it. But the animation work is really good. I like the cotton they used for smoke.

No nude females guaranteed. Be sure to to take a look at her work!
