My main focus is on 2D animation. To set the right tone I always have the audience in mind. I like to bring clarity to complex subjects and make things relatable. In my view, movement and design need to work together in support of the story or message.


I like to play with color and texture to create rich visuals. While taking inspiration from everyday life I like to create quirky characters and illustrations. I often create artwork for animations and visual identities, but I am also experienced in making technical illustrations and visuals for various e-learnings.

Motion Design

After Effects is one of my main tools. From logo- and intro animations to title designs. I love to bring graphics to life with well-timed movements. I also have experience with motion design for international social campaigns, TV commercials and digital out of home screens.

Creative Challenges

As a freelancer I love collaborating with other artists and agencies to expand my creative horizon. Besides commisioned projects I like to challenge myself by doing personal projects to keep evolving artistically.
