I'm an Icelandic illustrator, living in Reykjavík with my husband and two kids.
I really like to draw... ...a lot, every single day, often in the evening and sometimes at night.
Picture books are my passion and I'm constantly being inspired in my own (often very loud) little house.
When not trying to escape trolls or erupting volcanos, I chase my kids, draw and paint, preferably the creatures I'm chasing after and also the place that I live in.
