I am a concept artist and illustrator working in game development and teen and children’s publishing. I've worked on various projects, the biggest one being Island of winds, an upcoming game being developed in Iceland. Other clients include Töfrahurð publishing, The Directorate of Education in Iceland and most recently, Forlagið

I work mostly in Photoshop but also traditionally, mainly pencil, charcoal and acrylics. The themes I have mostly worked in are fantasy, folklore and adventure. I also love working with stories with themes like humor, empathy, inclusion and kindness.

I was born in Iceland and raised in Seyðisfjörður and Sandgerði, both small fishing villages on the opposite shores of Iceland. Currently I live in the capital region, with my husband, my two teens and two senior tom cats.
