I'm a 25 year old girl raised in Bergen, Norway. I've lived one year in Japan in 2018/2019 and have a Bachelor degree in Japanese language and culture. My hobbies are many, but I especially love gaming, languages, gardening, Japan and art. I was born with a condition which sometimes hinders my everyday life. Because of this I've reflected a lot and now spend every day focusing on the things that makes me happy, like my art. I'm not a political artist and rather want to make something simple that adds colour to the world.

In 2020 I had my first exhibition at Løvetann Café at Nordnes, Bergen. Since then I've sold art to my 6K followers on Twitch and done some commissioning for bigger and smaller streamers.


In March 2022 I came in contact with Underground Gallery in Bergen. This is were I sell my art at the moment and work on other projects. Through Underground Gallery I've been able to spray stencils in Nygårdsgaten and at "the worlds longest stencil underground" in Bergen, close to Bystasjonen.

My dream is to one day be known for my art, not just my face.
