Born in 1978 and bred in Kalmar, Sweden.
In 1998 I moved to Stockholm. After 15+ years as an IT entrepreneur I decided to change path in life and pursue a life as a painter.
In 2014 I enrolled in the Swedish Academy of Realist Art in Stockholm to study classical drawing and painting. After one semester I made the move to Florence, Italy where I began studies at the Florence Academy of Art.
After graduating, in 2017, I was awarded an “Artist in Residency” position at the academy. That involved teaching other students as well as focusing on my own work.
Isola Studios is the name of my business where I offer art courses and artworks for sale.
Isola Gård is the place where I live on Öland.
Yes I also paint upon order. Most common are portraits. But it could also be a building, pet, still life etc. Feel free to contact me with any questions and to discuss your project. In the link below you can read more about the process of painting a portrait.
After I completed my art training in Florence I continued on working as a drawing teacher for a year. I enjoy teaching a lot. If you are interested in taking one of my courses, or to study with me in private, please check out the links below.
