Exhibition in Gothenburg









Right now my illustration prints are exhibited (and for sale) at Rum för papper in Gothenburg, Sweden. The exhibition runs until October 6. The store doesn't only have amazing products, the interior is amazingly beautiful.

2 top pictures are taken by the staff at Rum för papper.
2 bottom pictures are taken by my friend Pär Eriksson.
Thank you so much for letting me show them on my blog since I wasn't able to be there in person!

Sandra's Guide to: Gothenburg


It's time to put together a small guide over Gothenburg (Sweden), where I lived for 12 years before moving to Berlin. I haven't been back there since I moved almost 2 years ago so I can't guarantee that everything is as good as it was back then, but these are some of the places I enjoyed while living there.

Click the links and use a search engine if you need more information.


My favouite season in Gothenburg was Fall, but all seasons have their charm. Make sure to bring good shoes and an umbrella - it rains more in Gothenburg than in London.

Amazing place to go for a swim which I used to do a lot. They serve breakfast afterwards, which I really recommend.
