Per-Ake Andersson's Profile

About

After working in the IT business for more than 20 years, I am discovering my creativity in an entirely new trade. Building on my Swedish heritage and Scandinavian sensibility, I have begun creating characters inspired by Swedish folklore. The first subject fashioned was the “Tomte” (aka Gnome) in various sizes and color combinations.
I use as much natural and post-consumer recycled material as possible in my art. My love and passion for conservation and appreciation of nature runs deep in my veins. All pieces are handmade and therefore each is unique in its appearance.
Inspired by my young daughter’s “Troll hunting” expedition during a recent vacation to my hometown (Linköping, Sweden), I have added Trolls to the collection.
I currently reside in Greensboro, NC with my wife, daughter and two fur kids.
