About:
Ulf was initially  a  student  at  the  Scandinavian  Violin  Making  School,  Ulf  decided  to leave  his  studies  to  pursue  a  deepening  passion  for  bows.  Early  tutelage under  C.  Hans-Karl  Schmidt  later  led  to  periods  of  study  with  Charles Espey  and  Brian  Tunnicliffe.  Before  pursuing  fulltime  bowmaking,  Ulf worked  for  five  years  as  archetier  at  the  N.  Nilsson  Violin  Shop  in  Malmö. Ulf's  bows  are  in  demand  by  leading  players  across  Europe.  His  work  has won  prizes  at  international  competitions  and  will  be  featured  in  'The  Great Contemporary  Bow  Makers  of  the  21st  Century  -  Volume  3'  by  Darling publications.  A  devoted  teacher,  Ulf  has  taught  bowmaking  at  Cambdrige, the  Scandinavian  Violin  Making  School  and  to  apprentices,  such  as  Eric Fournier  and  Jordan  Scapinello  in  his  studio  on  the  family  horse  farm  in the  south  of  Sweden.
