“I believe that with a great amount of passion you can make any dreams come true.”
I am passionate about becoming a force of nature within the art world and making sure my name will be remembered. Something I am willing to fight for.
My art features women drawn from imagination and inspiring women in my life. As a young girl my father often brought me to his job at the Royal Opera where I spent my time dreaming about the vibrant people, fantastic clothes and amazing art. Dreams that later became real in my paintings.

Kill the Kong is a Swedish seven-man strong metal/hardcore outfit formed in 2015. Built on percussion-based grooves, aggression and "in your face" live shows, the band quickly got recognized as a force to be reckoned with when releasing their debut single Caged during the summer of 2015.
After a successful self titled debut album and a lot of touring Kill the Kong signed a record deal with GAIN/Sony Music (Avatar, Europe, Hardcore Superstar) in the beginning of 2017. This led to the critically acclaimed second album Colossus and more great live shows.
In early 2020 the band signed a world wide record deal with American based label Seek and Strike (Upon a Burning Body, Orbit Culture). The EP Dead Spirit Pt. 1 was released shortly after and included the singles Rather Be Sick, Red Alert and Interstellar. Dead Spirit Pt. 2 is coming out on September 3rd 2021 and then the two EP:s will be released as a full album, exclusively on vinyl. Get in line folks because these songs are all killer, no filler.
KILL THE KONG
Hollow Heads came to life a dark January night in 2019. They wanted to capture the raw and aggressive energy from the classic rock trio Nirvana, but that wasn't exactly the sound they were looking for. It soon became very clear what they wanted to do and after a few rehearsals they found their own cocktail of different influences and styles. The outcome is a younger relative to Kyuss, Audioslave and Wolfmother. Hard rock, but with a groove and some fuzz. You will start moving, that's for sure.
Hollow Heads debut album is recorded and we can't wait to let the beast out of its cage. We hope the world is ready for this power trio. We are. Foto: Sebastian Oddner
Svarta Sanningar (Black Truths) was formed in 2017 as a rock/metal band with all vocals in Swedish. They have created a whole concept around the band and written a fictive backstory about a mysterious society called Svarta Sanningar. The idea is to re-capture some of the atmosphere from horror movies and transform the drama into music.
Their first EP Kapitel 1 (Chapter 1) was released in November 2018 and can be described as a dirty mix of Joy Division, The Cure, Thåström and dark metal. The second EP Kapitel 2 (Chapter 2) was released 21th of May.
The Generals was formed in 2002 as a heavy action rock band but quickly developed into a Death 'n' Roll machine.
New album TO HELL is produced by Tomas Skogsberg, recorded in Sunlight Studios, Black Zombie and Dead Dog Farm, mixed and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory on Dugout Productions (FKÜ, Lik, Baest).
Although there is still a rock 'n' roll vein that permeates the music, the new album is more death metal than ever before. The perfect blend of crushing riffs, epic choruses and vicious tunes has been ground down in this 10-track vinyl. Order your limited edition vinyl below or listen to the music on Spotify!
