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. Being on this course has brought back my passion for drawing, and it has given me the confidence and ability 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.
