I was born and raised in the oldest Kingdom in Europe: Denmark, home of the Vikings and home of H. C. Andersen. It’s a small country spread over 400+ islands in the north.
Descended from old-world farmers, who worked the land with hands and horses, I grew up in a village of just 180 people, surrounded by beautiful nature and a wide variety of animals.
While still living in Denmark I attended The Academy of Fine Arts in Århus, before leaving my home country behind to continue my studies at Pratt Institute in New York City.
I was able to afford only one year at Pratt Institute. It was one of the best years of my life. After that, I was faced with the choice of returning home to Denmark or taking the leap into a career as an artist. I knew what I wanted – to be an artist, so I took the leap began my career as a freelance illustrator.
It has not always been an easy path, but it has always been the right path. Every day I wake up, I am so thankful I get to do this for a living.
I’m passionate about folklore, mythology, and its impact on the human experience. I’m also enamored with imagination, nature, animals, whimsical worlds, fantasy art, and the psychology behind, which are topics I frequently explore in my work.
“Myths are the roots of our souls.”
I’m a storyteller at heart and am currently working on two book projects of my own making: Montague Mouse and Locke the Legend.
In my work, I combine deeper themes of life with adventurous, whimsical, wondrous visuals, and sometimes with a touch of darkness and mystery.
Beyond art and writing, I am passionate about animals, philosophy, art history, cooking, gaming, and Dungeons & Dragons.
I currently have the pleasure of sharing my quarters with three cats Minnie, Minion & Moxxi, and two guinea pigs named Guineavere & Popchop.
