“My inspiration comes from a lot of things – from my family, job where I work with libraries and schools ( and I love to read. Books are magic and they bring you in magical worlds. The letters on paper transfer to worlds in your head. I enjoy drawing some of these worlds, my ideas and also to draw the pictures my children tell me to draw. My hammock is a place to unwind and relax from all the hustle of life.

I draw with one of the best iPad apps I know: Paper by fiftythree.(
It is a magical app to draw and create everything you want. I like to share my drawings as well.”

“I’ve always used Moleskine’s. So to have the same quality for a digital made booklet seemed a great opportunity to showcase some of my inspiration. And it does.”
