About

I always loved to create things.
I was born and raised in Sweden and came to New York to study.
With a background and interest in making sculptures, my apartment in the Village was too small for this kind of work. Instead I begun working with wire and fabrics and I
created head bands that could twist and turn. These sculptural headbands became sought after and I got to know quite a few store owners. One of them asked me to make hats for her store. I had never made a hat in my life, but I tried. I soon taught myself how to block felt and straw, use millinery stitches, mix materials, to pinch, to pleat, and otherwise
manipulate materials into exiting styles and shapes of hats. I loved it and I still do.
My hats have been featured and sold at Bergdorf Goodman and other fine stores and boutiques in the US and Europe…
