Clothing Inspired by Family & Nature
Whether I'm taking in a fresh morning with my daughter at home, hiking with my husband and friends, or exploring a place I've never been, I find inspiration for my designs in the simple beauty of nature everywhere. As an avid traveller, especially to Sweden, of which I'm a citizen, my inspiration is primarily drawn from my surroundings in Sweden and my surroundings at home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Nature has always brought me such comfort. When life gets stressful, getting outside (no matter the weather) helps me calm down and focus. My most cherished moments were spent outdoors in nature, whether that was hiking with friends and family, going for walks with my husband, daughter and dog, or relaxing on a beach listening to the waves.
My favorite memory in nature was sitting outside a red barn in Sweden next to the wheat fields at sunset while listening to a live guitarist play. The birds were chirping in the trees and I could feel the gentle breeze rustling the grass under our picnic table.
These simple moments spent in nature are what "fill my cup" and give me inspiration that anything is possible if you follow your path.

Growing up with dual citizenship to Sweden has allowed me to travel since I was a baby. Ever since I can remember, my family and I have visited Europe at least once a year, primarily Sweden. Sweden is such an important part of my life. Being half Swedish has shaped me as a person.
I'm so grateful that I've had that opportunity to experience other countries and cultures outside of the U.S. My husband loves to travel as well, so we're keeping the tradition of travel alive with our young, growing family.
My travels inspire my LUNA clothing designs. Every season, I would love to travel to a new place, either in the U.S. or abroad, to inspire the colors and designs for my future collections. This is my way of bringing parts of my journeys to my followers.
Family is my everything. My parents, siblings, husband, and (soon-to-be) two kids are my whole world. Becoming a mother has been the most amazing experience of my life. My husband and I are expecting our second child in this August (2019) and I cannot wait to have two little girls to love. In becoming a mother, I now feel like I'm now completely who I'm supposed to be.
Becoming a mother inspired me to pursue my dreams of starting LUNA Athleisure. I can't wait to share this dream with women everywhere, in every stage of their life.
