A girl from Sweden


"I love telling stories. And I love telling them through images."

My name is Kajsa, and I'm an animator, illustrator and storyteller from Sweden. I live in a snug apartment in the outskirts of Stockholm. My life is quiet but wonderful, filled with creative wonders and cozy afternoons. 

A while back I graduated as a Motion Graphic designer from Hyper Island. Since then I've developed my animation and illustration skills in After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Want to collaborate? Don't hesitate to write me a line for a chat or a Swedish fika!
