About fifteen years ago she started her first soloproject that resulted in the CD "Silhuette" with music by the late Swedish jazzmusician Lars Gullin. This, and the three following solo CD:s, has been favourably reviewed and are released in Sweden, but also on license in Germany on the label Laika Records.
