Bergslagen is a geographical area located in central Sweden. This is where I live and where I find inspiration for my nature artworks. It was once known for being rich in minerals and for its ore mines, the last of which closed in 1989.
Today, it stands out for its amazing nature and its numerous nature reserves, populated by endless forests, lakes, rivers, and vast wetlands. The wilderness here is extensive and the area has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Sweden.

I have just started exploring this wonderful region, and my goal is to get to know it and document it with my pictures throughout its entire extension, therefore this gallery will hopefully continue to grow over time.
