VRAK just published some of our design proposals, for a new potental product to their gift shop, on their website.

THE YEAR 2021

January 2022

Time to sum up the art and design year of 2021. A year with focus and hope that the new vaccin would let us live a more "normal day to day life" again. A year where I got to meet my 97 year old grandmother again, hug my friends, graduate and continue on to Konstfack´s Master´s Programme in Design. A year where every little positive event and input meant so much and a year where, despite all the restrictions, I had some great opportunities to showcase my art and design. So, so grateful for that!

Here is where my art and design was shown:

  • Paticipated in Stockholm Design Weeks digital edition of Greenhouse with my corner lamp EFFEKT.
  • Participated with EFFEKT in the digital exhibition "At Last" in Superellipsen at Sergels Torg together with my class mates.
  • I guest lectured for future Industrial Design students at my former preporatory school, Konstskolan Stockholm. 
  • So thankful that we got to have a real, physical graduation exhibition this year even if it was with restrictions.
  • So happy for the opportunity to exhibit my art in the exhibition "In the shadow of a lake" at beautiful Olseröds Konsthall.
  • I graduated from Konstfack´s Bachelor Programme in Industrial Design. 
  • I received  a scholarship for my work with my Bachelor project LIST.
  • I got in to Konstfack´s Master´s Programme in Design!! 
  • Studentdesign.com promoted my Bachelor Project.
  • I was so happy for the invitation to show my art in the exhibition TAKEAWAY during Stockholm Craft Week.
  • Design created within the framework of my education.
  • Konstfack's annual Christmas market.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! 

December 2021

Wishing everyone a really Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your nearest and dearest!

To me, a good Christmas equals a white Christmas. A Christmas where everyone, children and adults, can feel peace and warmth in a safe and loving place without any chaos, trouble or anxiety. A Christmas without alcohol and drugs is a white and Merry Christmas for EVERYONE!

Big Christmas Hug!!

GROUP EXHIBITION

December 2021

December 8-10, 2021, Exhibition "Exploration 2", Konstfack, LM Ericsson väg 14, Telefonplan, Stockholm. 

Vernissage on Wednesday December 8, 17.00-20.00.

During the first semester of the Master Programme we have explored, reseached, sketched, prototyped and designed with inspiration from an every day artifact. 

I chose to work with a specific desk lamp for work that I own but didn´t work for me as an inspiration. In the first part, "Exploration 1", I made two prototypes in each of the following three perspectives "Make i work", Work when I work" and "Works for more than work" that makes a total of six prototypes.

Moving in to "Exploration 2" I chose to continue my final design proposal in the perspective "Work for more than work" and ended up designing an add-on to a sofa table as a flexible work space for work from home. Check it out by clicking here.

 MY MASTER PLAN 

June 2021

In early spring and in the middle of all hard work with two exhibitions at Stockholm Design Week and my head full of thoughts on the upcoming degree project, the application work for further studies started. On March 1, I submitted a 21-page portfolio with rigorous requirements on the content and how they should be presented.

The happy news came only days into the summer holidays that I, together with 13 students from all over the world, got a place for Konstfack's 2-year education "Master's program in design - Individual study plan in design". 

Autumn semester begins on August 30th with new exciting challenges and a mix of new and old classmates to share them with.

HURRAY!!

SCHOLARSHIP

June 2021

In connection with my degree, I had the great honor of receiving a scholarship from Konstfack's scholarship foundation, Community for deserving students for my degree project LIST.

I am really grateful and happy for the scholarship and the fantastic response and recognition my project received from Konstfack, my teachers, family and friends as well as from visitors during the spring exhibition.

Eager to read my essay? Download the full text here.

I PASSED!

May 2021

My 3 years at Konstfack's bachelor's program in Industrial Design are coming to an end. With three weeks left, my thesis is approved and ready, HURRAY, so now I can just enjoy the time that remains. Maybe build something, fix my portfolio and reflect.

So what happens next? First  of a summer vacation with work at the museum and maybe a summer course. I will get back to you on my  plan for the future...

I wish everyone a summer!!


GROUP EXHIBITION

May 2021

The exhibition "In the shadow of  a lake" will be shown between May 15 - June 20, 2021, Olseröds konsthall, Olserödsvägen 52, Olseröd.

OPENING:   Saturday 15 May 2021, 13.00-17.00.

Other opening hours are Wednesday - Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00, until 20 June 2021.

At Olseröd I show three lake sculptures in different sizes, photo art and my Happypots. I share the exhibition space with Swedish artist Linnéa Andersson who creates fantastic art pieces on a large scale. The lake shapes are made of white copy paper that has a blue tone in it. In different lights, the blue tone is captured, changed and amplified. The works can therefore look completely different depending on where they hang, what time of day it is and whether they hang in daylight or in artificially lit spaces. At Olseröd's art gallery, visitors can walk around and between the three works and experience the phenomenon on site for themselves.

Welcome!

SPRING EXHIBITION

April 2021

I am so happy to be able to inform that this year there will be a physical and safe spring exhibition at Konstfack if nothing unforeseen happens. Mine and my classmates' degree projects will be presented there between 8 - 14 May 2021. 

Konstfack's spring exhibition 2021 takes place at Konstfack and Konstnärshuset on four unique occasions from 8 May to 6 June.

LECTURE ASSIGNMENT

April 2021

On Monday, April 6, I will have the honor of lecturing at the Art School, where I also attended my first preparatory art and design education during the academic year 2016/2017.

Since I left, the education has been divided into a pure art education and a preparatory education for future industrial designers. I will lecture for the latter and show and tell about what it is like to study at Konstfack and tell about my journey and activities.

Gonna be so much fun!


PHOTOSHOOT

February 2021

So exciting!! Today, this red custom-made paper form is lent out as props for a photo shoot for an upcoming fashion report in printed format.

Definitely unusual to work with a completely matte paper in strong colors, but it grew on me during the work. Now you just have to keep your fingers crossed that it can get to appear 


GROUP EXHIBITION

February 2021

Den 8 - 13 februari, visas AT LAST i Superellipsen, Sergels torg i Stockholm.

Vår digitala utställning kan ses dygnet runt fr o m den 8 februari 2021.

I samband med Stockholm Design Week har designskolorna i Stockholm dragit ihop en egen utställning som komplement till årets digitala version av Greenhouse. I Superellipsen visar vi på Industridesign upp resultatet av vinterns kurs "Action & Failure" i ett av Ellipsens stora skyltfönster ut mot Sergels torg.

Till oss behöver ingen tid bokas då den går att se dygnet runt utifrån. Vill ni däremot besöka de tre utställningarna som visas inomhus i Ellipsen så behöver ni boka en tid i förväg. 

Varmt välkomna!

GREENHOUSE + ID 

February 2021

I år har min klass fått den stora äran att ställa ut på Greenhouse under andra veckan i februari. Då pågående pandemi sätter stopp för en fysisk möbelmässa så kommer det inom kort att publiceras en digital utställning för att visa upp allt fint som skolor och bransch skapat till eventet. 

Såklart supertrist att inte få möjlighet att möta alla besökare och visa upp våra skapelser "live" men vi ska göra vårt yttersta för att presentera våra verk och representera vår skola på bästa sätt. 

Årets mässa har ledorden HÅLLBARHET - INNOVATION - NYFIKENHET i fokus och till det har vi på Industridesign valt att applicera temat FRAMTID.

THE YEAR 2020

January 2021

Time to sum up the art and design year 2020. A different year for everyone around the world. A year where homework in the form of digital teaching also took over in the schools and where we did not have the opportunity to spend time with our loved ones as much as we wanted. A year where every positive event and input meant a lot. A year where, despite all the restrictions, I had great opportunities to showcase my art and design, something I am so grateful for. We do not know what 2021 has to offer but I am charged and ready to create both large and small stuff...


Here was my art and design shown:

  • A revised version of my work "Soilu" is now part of Frövifors paper mill's permanent collection.
  • During the spring, I received a scholarship through the Ulla Fröberg-Cramér Scholarship Foundation.
  • My competition entry "Block" was further nominated in The Sofacompany's design competition.
  • I took care of Konstfack's Instagram account for a week in October where I showed off my art and design.
  • My paper art is highlighted on @kvinnokonsten's instagram account.
  • My exhibition "The sense of a rag rug" was shown during  November in Galleri Sintra's window in Gothenburg.
  • The "Happy Pot - Uplight" lamp was purchased by and participated in MAQS Advokatbyrå's annual art lottery.
  • Art and design created within the framework of my education.
  • Konstfack's annual Christmas market.

My contribution to this year's version of Konstfack's Christmas market are my pots "Happy Pots" and coasters "Dov". The pots are made from recycled interior magazines and cans that I save from local restaurants and the coasters are made of felt fabric. Everything handmade with a lot of love.

July 2020

My new hangtags came with the mail today so now I can mark all my art and design whenever needed.

I have changed the design a lot since the last time I ordered both in form and layout to find an expression that better represents me and what I create.


VACATION OR NOT...

June 2020

Yesterday we digitally witnessed our third year Bachelor and second year Master students graduation, receive scholarships and toast each other a in Spökparken. Today we had our end of term celebration via Zoom and viewed this year Exam work digitally via Konstfack's website. All these digital solutions are created and in place for us to be able to see each other without actually meeting and participate without physically being in place  would probably have felt strange a year ago but with the spring we all had during this Covid pandemic, we have had to learn new ways and tricks - some good and some not optimal ways have been tested and of course it has worked but the very best closing gift we could get was the confirmation that we will all be allowed back to school this fall!

So what's happening on this summer? My trip to Croatia is canceled and we are not allowed to visit my 96-year-old grandmother at her nursing home or for that matter fly there. The museum is still closed and if they open at the end of June, it is on a very limited scale and we are many who share the work shifts. My plan is to prep and build art pieces for the autumn exhibition, sketch on ideas for my coming exam work and a summer course in Circular Textile, after all we have practiced studying digitally all spring so one more course is no problem...

SCHOLORSHIP

April 2020

This year I have had the great honor of receiving a scholarship from Ulla Fröberg Cramér's scholarship foundation for a project I am working on. More information about it will come but as a little "sneak peek" it has to do with all the rolled newspaper on the picture..

The scholarship is awarded twice a year to students and teachers at Konstfack according to the following criteria:

"Available returns shall be used for the formation of scholarships for unmediated students at Konstfack in Stockholm, who through good conduct, diligence and greater aptitude have made themselves deserving"

I am really so grateful and happy for this scholarship and the support it gives me to complete my project!

HOME SCHOOLING

March 2020

From now on, all education at Konstfack will take place digitally to avoid the spreading of Covid-19 among students and teachers. For how long, no one knows. Of course, health always comes first and we can only keep our fingers crossed that we will soon be back in our workshops again. Until then, we run lectures, tutorials, presentations and coffee over Zoom.

Keep a distance and help and take care of each other and we will get through this pandemic as well!

GROUP EXHIBITION

This is the perfect summer job that I hope will develop into the perfect extra work even when school starts up again...

Come and visit me and this amazing museum!

ART ASSOCIATION

May 2019

In the spring of 2019, my work "KLAN" is part of Handelsbanken's annual art lottery. It will be so exciting to see where the work ends up next...

"KLAN" is created from felt, wood and metal and is a further development of my work "FAMILY BAND" where I create the same shape / pattern in white copy paper.

"KLAN" was shown for the first time in connection with Gerlesborgsskolan's spring exhibition in May 2018 and immediately afterwards at Galleri Helle Knudsen where the work was also sold.

The image on the art association's website is not of the best quality, so I have taken the liberty of using one of my own images instead.

GRUOP EXHIBITION

Together with 7 other artists, I have had the privilege of building my own little world out of paper for the exhibition "A Paper Art Fantasy" which will be shown at Frövifors paper mill museum this summer.

The work I will be exhibiting is called "SOILU" and is made up out of thousands of strips of white copy paper. The shape curls in a water-like pattern, a closed cycle in both stillness and constant movement, which is enhanced by the reflections it creates. Illuminated by color, "SOILU" hangs down from the ceiling and spills over the podium.

"SOILU" is named after a lake in a village in northeastern Finland that contains large parts of my family history.

Come and visit the exhibition this summer!

BACK TO SCHOOL

September 2018

September 3, 2018, Konstfack, Stockholm.

This year I am starting my 3-year bachelor's education in Industrial Design at Konstfack in Stockholm.

With a long career within finance, HR and project management behind me, I decided that it was time for me to completely change course in life and explore and develop my creative side. After two years at preparatory art and design schools, first at the Art School in Stockholm and then at Gerlesborgsskolan, I applied to Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design school for the first time - and I got in.

For me, good design is a smart combination of finesse, form and function.

"Summer in Sweden" is made of thousands of strips of paper in 3 shades from the series Popset, dimensions about 360x400 cm.

SOLO EXHIBITION

November 2017

The solo exhibition Swings with Grandma, November 20 - 24, 2017, Gerlesborgsskolan, Hjorthagen.

Producing works, holding and presenting a solo exhibition on the school's premises is a natural part of Gerlesborgsskolan's artistic undergraduate education. The exhibition is carried out during year 2 and the student can choose how and what to show.

At my exhibition, I focused on my Finnish heritage, my grandmother's history and three generations of firstborn women - my grandmother, my mother and me. All works are built with different types of paper and wooden details as the main material.

The following of my works were shown during my solo exhibition: GENERTIONSSKIFTE, TUSEN SJÖAR, GUNGAR MED MORMOR, REDSKAP PÅ FINSKA, RINGDANS, SFÄR och PAPILJOTT.

SPRING EXHIBITION 

May 2017

May 31 - June 6, 2017, Stockholm School of Art, Kungstensgatan 45, Stockholm.

Vernissage 31 May at 16.00-19.00.

In our final project, we at the Art School have worked with the theme Identity. The exhibition is included as part of Our exhibition, which includes five of Folkuiversitetet's Art and Culture educations. The word identity has acquired an actualized meaning in today's public debate. The concept is illustrated in short workshops and in one's own artistic work. We want to explore and visualize the theme based on political, social and psychological aspects.

My work - FAMILY BAND - is made of 1,700 strips of white copy paper mounted on and in a frame made of pine wood. Dimensions 300 x 200 cm.

Warm welcome!
