I was born and raised in Iceland and have been drawing ever since I can remember. I did my BA in Architecture at the Academy of Art in Iceland in 2012. I quickly realized however, that I was more interested in storytelling and illustrating stories, which brought me to this course. Being here has been a great opportunity to develop my work and has given me the confidence to develop my own stories and illustrations.

I particularly like using gouache and colour pencils, as well as ink, in my artwork. This course has also been a great opportunity to try different mediums, such as the risograph, which I tried recently for my master´s project.
