When did you discover your love for glass?
Glassblowing has intrigued me since I saw it for the first time as a little girl on holiday with my family in Sweden. I have always worked creatively, but in 1998 I tried glassblowing for the first time and I have worked with it ever since.
What makes your craft so exciting?
In addition to glassblowing, I use techniques and materials from other disciplines, including silversmithing, oil painting, ink, glue, bead making and ceramics. This crossover is very stimulating and opens up new ideas and possibilities for my artistic expression.

Do you mix tradition and innovation in your work?
Glassblowing has such a rich tradition, so it can be difficult to depart from the standardised set of rules we need to learn in order to become a skilled glassblower, but lately I have been working on breaking the rules that I have made for myself during the last 22 years.
Where do you find inspiration?
My sources of inspiration are dynamic and constantly moving. Transience and our interaction with nature are important factors in my work, but at the same time, like most people, I live a parallel life in the digital world, and my latest development is a study of how we attempt to balance the two worlds.
