about

To introduce myself I'd like to keep it short and simple; I smile a lot and love to spread good energy around me. Pattern clashes makes my heart beat faster but there is also nothing more satisfying than clean cuts. I see myself as camoflauged spirit who really enjoy and appreciate working as a flexible person between the two extremes.


When I am not working, I love to widen my perspectives through photography, spontaneous traveling, being in the nature with a basket of ’fika' and to meet new inspiring people.


My name is Pernille Knudsen and I hope you will like what you are about to see.
