Swedish nature romantic who lived for five years in the South Bohemian forest, doing all the things you normally plan to do when you’re old.  Presently resettling in the original home country, not that old after all and with a head full of jumbled impressions to process.

I read mainly fiction – good fiction that opens your mind to unknown experiences and enriches your life. Big fan of Barbara Kingsolver, Thomas Pynchon, Nabokov, Marquez, Peter Carey and a lot of others who - in my mind - fit into that category.

Addicted to pens and paper but the outcome isn’t always clear from the start. Sometimes it’s drawing, sometimes writing. Prefer to write landscapes and paint life (though it doesn’t always work out that way). Punctuation fascist and, at heart, always and forever a nerd.
