Hi, my name is Erica Olsson, and I am a recent graduate from the Academy of Art University where I earned my BFA in Interior Architecture and Design. I am originally from Umeå, located on the northeast coast of Sweden. In January of 2009, I packed my bags and bought a one-way ticket to a city I had never visited before. I have since then lived in San Francisco, CA.
Through school and life, I have been taught patience, importance of positive attitude, the willingness to try new things and hard work. Most importantly, I have been taught that being open to failure is a natural path to success. On top of that, I have developed skills in sketching, concept development, several computer programs, oral- and graphic presentation and collaboration. Please refer to my resume for my skills and experience.
