I grew up in Denmark on an island in the middle of the beautiful fiord, Limjorden. I have always been inspired by nature and enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors.


I moved to England in 1995 and have lived on the edge of the picturesque Ilkley Moor in West Yorkshire ever since and this is also where my design studio is based.

I have had a long career in the furniture industry before I took a change of direction and added another degree to my portfolio. I graduated from Leeds College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in Graphic Design as a mature student in 2015 and started my journey within the branding and graphic design industry.


​I founded Nordika Design Ltd. t/a Stompa, a furniture business, in 1998. My background in building up and managing Nordika Design has been invaluable in my ability to understand my clients’ needs and help them reach their goals.


When you set up your own business you do everything yourself in the beginning - from spotting the gap in the market to product design, sourcing and spending time at the factories, coordinating logistics, selling products and managing your brand.


With that experience behind me, I approach every project with a mindset that takes all aspects of your business, its challenges and potential growth into account to reach the best outcome for you longterm.



I have teamed up with an amazing ‘extended team’ of experts that I can bring around the table to help fulfil briefs from time to time which means we can also take care of your photoshoots and produce promotional films for you.
