Johanna Jonsson Abchee
Johanna Jonsson Abchee is a Swedish-Iraqi mirror designer, currently based in Beirut.
Raised in Stockholm, she sought inspiration in her childhood travels, living between Saudi
Arabia, Greece, Laos and Spain. She then moved to Beirut to pursue studies in advertising
and marketing. After getting married and raising three children, Johanna began reflecting
upon her own journey and experiences, both literally and metaphorically, through mirrors.
In this vein, she expresses: “A mirror is the most intimate connection to yourself. It’s shallow
and profound at the same time, presenting you with a choice – to see the superficial or if you
dare, go deeper.”

Johanna launched Karma J in 2009 and quickly earned her spot as a new-coming artist at
Beirut’s Design Week in 2014. In 2016, she was then selected at La Serre in Dubai as an
Aspiring Artist for a solo exhibition. That same year, Karma J was inaugurated in both the
commercial and residential sectors in Dubai, as well as Beirut. She then won the International
A Award in Italy for The Rebel in 2016.

Her path since teems with personal and professional growth, through reflections and the
conception of new collections. She affirms: “Since knowledge is as infinite as the universe, the
understanding of self (and of others) is an everlasting journey.”
