The colour of love

He told his boyfriend "Put on the coffee. I will be right back with something you will love." and then he came by my studio to pick up this painting. That is love for you! Please come back soon. Can´t wait to hear if he liked it. Who would not like/love that gift?!

DN Bostad

The Stockholm based morning paper Dagens Nyheter have a "home feature" on Fridays. Today you can se one of my paintings hanging on a wall. Actually the couple, Johan and Sofie, in the article have three of my paintings in their home. Enjoy!


Sometimes you make misstakes. I just did. This one was supposed to be 50x50 cm not 50x70 cm. I have to make a new one. Not misstake, painting! If you did someting remarkable on this day, that you would like to celebrate by hanging the date on your wall. Please do let me know.

Right now you need real boots if you are going for a walk in Sweden. But soon it will be spring and you can put on your ballerinas.

Cinamon tea

I try to kickstart my day with a cup of hot cinamon tea. Easy is not the word I would use talking about drinking when you are not able to control the left side of your face. But I force myself out into the world. A lame face is not a reason to hide. Today I am meeting a new, inspiering partner...maybe even friend, in my studio.

Mark your calendar!

March 12th to 14th I will be showing paintings at Blomstermåla in Särö. Maybe there will be a little less snow, by then, and you will be able to take a walk by the ocean before you warm up your eyes on my artwork.

I want to wake up with you

Memories that make me smile!

This morning my grandmother past away. I think she chose not to wake up. To just float away. That is how I would do it... I think. I love you Elsa! I am so happy that I have so many memories of you and me. So many good talks in your kitchen (Los Angeles),  in your garden (Santa Barbara). Walking together on the beach (Brown Pelican). Eating ice cream (chokolate/orange) Laughing, arguing, driving, walking. Thank you for everything! Now I can hear something popping ... It must be the champagne bottles in heaven. I bet you are slipping into your nicest dress right now, prepearing for the party they have in your honor tonight!

Happy in the snow!

Woke up to more snow this morning. Pricken and I went for a walk. She loves to jump, sniff and dig in the white fluff. The usualy very silent dog barks at the tractor, ploughing in the snow. I look at the driver and smile. Well. Try to smile. I am still suffering from "facialpares" and the left side of my face doesn´t move at all. My attempt to smile might appear like a grin to him. Kind of funny. Happy dog, happy girl looks more like barking/mad and grinning angry. Things are not always what they seem!

Lucky stuff!

A horse shoe, a butterfly, a crazy horse and a car. To hang around your neck or whirl on your wrist. The little bell at the end of the chain is just a tingeling bonus!

Love in a box!

Adjustable necklace/bracelet with a love theme!

Right beside you!

Today it might look like I am here. In Gothenburg, Sweden, by the computer. Working. But my mind is somewere else. On the other side of the Atlantic. Sitting by a bed, holding a hand, whispering funny stories that all start "Do you remember when you and I?" Today I am spending my day, in my head, with my grandmother Elsa.

Göteborgs Posten

Tjohoooo! In todays issue of the morning paper Göteborgs Posten you can read an article about the Konstslöjdsalong at Röhsska. I am mentioned with an exclamation mark! The journalist seams surprised that my concreate cakes actually can be used, not only looked at. But you can! They are perfect to keep a door from slamming in the wind. A colourful, heavy, not fragile cake does the job perfect!

Not always on the wall

Check out this beautiful apartment sold by Alvhem. Paintings don´t always need to be on the wall. I can se one of mine leaning on the floor - and it looks just perfect!

My window!

Today me and Pricken went to the studio to get some painting done. I redid my window as well. Couldn´t help myself from showing everyone the nice picture of the "cirkus" necklace.


It was snowing when me and Pricken took our morningwalk. Suddenly she jumped into the air, opened her mouth and caught a snowflake with her tongue. I just keep on falling in love with this little dog every day! So funny. She did it three more times before we went inside.

X-tra Long

Your wish is my command! Now you can find the X-tra long "cirkus" necklace in my webshop. Just klick on "necklaces".


I love it when people get back to me with feedback! I just got a wonderful message on my Facebook wall. A woman wrote "Hi, I bought a textpainting from you who read: DU ÄR MIN LYCKA. Now me and my boyfriend are married and inside our rings we wrote: MIN LYCKA." That girl just made my day!


Zzwapp! I only showed this one for a couple of hours in my webshop before it got sold. Now I have to hurry up and send it. The girl who bought it have big plannes. She and the necklace are having dinner on Wednesday!

Cirkus necklaces - blue and silver

The "cirkus necklace" shown in Topphälsa Magazine is still at my pressagents office. And you do know that all my nacklaces are unique pieces, don´t you? I never make one exactly the same. But the good new is I do have two brand new ones in my webshop. The silvercoloured one measures 73 cm´s and the blue one is a bit shorter, 60 cm´s.


My home is still filled with beautiful flowers! Feels nice to have all these colours inside when the city outside still is covered in white (grey) snow.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010


Here it is! The necklace inspired by cirkus and the colourful lights they always seem to have in Frensh movies (hanging from the trees or around wonderful restaurants). Soon in my webshop! This picture is from the Magazine Topphälsa.

Please dubbelklick on the picture for a larger image.

Topphälsa Magazine

I got an e-mail from a woman who wanted to buy the necklace shown in the latest issue of the Topphälsa Magazine. Wow! I did not even know they were showing my stuff. I have to run an get a copy today. And yes, if there is a necklace, of course you can buy it from me. I will get back to you on this later!
