“You know in French ‘pigeon’ means young dove.”

Crazy times…

The focus has been so intense on promotion of the work that hauls in the dough. The time for painting will come again, for now I get to sketch my kids and work on photoshop in spare bits of time.

Going away…

My family is going away on a trip for the coming week so this is what it feels like at home to pack while your children run around taking out all their toys and playing with the stuff you are packing.

If I was not packing (a chore to me) I’d think they were funny.

another favorite from the childhood collection…

When I was a kid my grandparents bought me comic books to encourage me to keep up with swedish. This book is in the comic book format… I love it still! The illustrator’s name is Zdenek Miler.


you can find one of these books in english here.

It takes a village…

Take the chance to really see the town-city-village you live in.

My husband and I have been living in Sonoma for a number of years and it feels like we are finally focussing more on being here and enjoying what our town has to offer- and what we have to offer our town.

I have always been the type to wonder what is around the corner- what is over there… now I am starting to embrace what is here!

One of my all time favorite children’s books…

There is a reason why I became the illustrator that I am today. My mother read books to me at night for many years, it started with picture books and continued on to Astrid Lindgren’s incredible stories.

One of the most memorable picture books was certainly Tove Janssons layered and magical “Hur Gick Det Sen?”

This is published in English too but my favorite is the swedish language version. 

 

You can find the book at Abe books here
