Short presentation

PhD student at the Department of Art History at Uppsala University. My research is focused on tapestry commissions and collecting at the Vasa court.

With a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Umeå University, I moved from Skellefteå to Uppsala, in 2007, to work as a family counsellor, with violence in close relationships and youths.

Understanding human behaviour was always my focus, and eventually, I became curious about art as a human expression. I began studying art history at Uppsala University in 2014. I finished my Master's degree while working as a curator at the Department of the Royal Collections.

I started my PhD in January 2023 and my main focus is the use of tapestries at the Vasa court, commissions and collecting.
