03 May An artistic home
Wall of Art visited me in my home for a small chat about me and my art.
With Anna’s education in art and fashion design, it became natural to start working with fashion drawing. Today she works as a shoe designer at the Swedish company Flattered and besides that she expresses her creativity in abstract art. We have visited Anna’s beautiful home to hear more about her passion for interior design and art. Be inspired by her artistic home and read more about Anna’s creating below.
“It may sound like a cliché to talk about creativity in creating. But it’s A and O for me. For real. I can’t follow recipes even if I try”
When did you start to illustrate?
It is far back in time. As a child, I was very fascinated by architecture, glass art, dance and interior design. I was certainly a bit odd when I think about it. But I have always had a need to express myself with my hands and visualize what I have in my head and done it pretty well. With my education in art and fashion design, it became natural to start working with fashion drawing. This has since resulted in more art forms as abstract sculptures and paintings.
What inspires you?
Many different things. Most often without knowing it. Sometimes, there may be something I look for in nature when I’m out, or someone I meet on the subway on my way to work in the morning. I think it is very fascinating that the things we pick up in our subconsciousness could later be shown in the things we create. It´s like that for me anyway.
What does creating mean to you?
For me, it is a way to relax and get some kind of energy. Expressing things I cannot do in speech or writing.
What do you want to mediate with your art?
Actually I just want anyone to be able to absorb my art. For me, art should not be so complicated. I want to invite people into my artistic world and blur out boundaries between the difficult and complex art with a few clicks of colour and dashes here and there.
