He was born and lives in northern Sweden and at an early age, his father, Wille, motivated his interest in crafts. Attending Vindelns Folkhögskola, he received an education in handicrafts. His main inspiration comes from the Swedish, self-sufficient craft and folk art, which originated around the 17th century. His work has focused mostly on old time craftsmanship, using such tools as the knife, axe and shaving horse to work with natural bent grown wood. Most of his of work includes painted stools, chairs, cutlery, cupboards, spoons, trays and sculpture. “Call me s.u.r.o.l.l.e., a kind of folk artistic ego, with your hands full, I am rich.”
