Born 1969, Finland, Åland
teacher, author, illustrator
I live in the small Åland Island, a self-depended island belonging to Finland and located between Sweden and Finland.
My work in school
I have been working as a teacher in a public school since 2001 with children in age ten to twelve. The children’s self-esteem has always been important for me. I can see the connection between good school results/good life quality and a strong self-esteem. Therefore I have been creating schoolprograms in Life-knowledge (“Livskunskap”). Insidan (www.insidan.eu) has created programs for schools to teach some everyday-physiology for children .
My writing and illustrating:
I have always liked to write, paint and draw and together with my interest in personal growth my two characters was born - The duck AnneAnka and the anteater Artur.
In recent years I have been writing novels and teaching writing. My novels is a mix with feelgood, some spirituality and history.
