Why did you pick this picture?
Of the four designs in this series, “Elephant” is the most detailed, so I’m a little extra proud of this one.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I have painted since I was little, but mostly in pencil and acrylic. I have seen much ink art and it fascinates me that it is possible to create som much feeling and power with only one color. Once I sat down and tried it out I was completely stuck. I really love this technique!
What does this art mean to you?
It’s an incredible feeling to have an idea of what I want to create and to be able to realize that idea and be happy with what I have created. That’s how I felt when I had finished this painting.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am 31 years old, married, have two wonderful children and live in Sweden. In the daytime I work as a hairdresser and makeup artist and I run a salon in central Gothenburg. I paint in the evenings and on weekends on my spare time. I love being creative and everything that gives me a creative outlet. For me, painting is a quiet, almost meditative thing to do. This provides a good contrast to my everyday job where I meet a lot of people – the perfect combination!
What more can you tell us about your art?
I’ve tried different materials and techniques. Pencil is what I have done most, but also acrylic and watercolor. Now, it’s ink I’m hooked on and hope to develop it more. I hope you like it!
