Living in Scandinavia with cold and snowy winters -– and being a passionate winter bather -– I have wanted to illustrate “my other home”: A tiny bathing hut with a tiny ladder leading to the big ocean. A place to refresh your body as well as your mind. I so enjoy this little breathing space.

My work is a kind of a pop-up book based on a lot of photos, I have taken of the real place at the beach. The little bathing hut is a pretty accurate mini model –- whereas the long ladder leading is more fictional to give an impression of the diving into the big ocean, which I hope, you can imagine when looking into my work.
