My work is featured in the book “Hygge Everyday’, an illustrated journal of daily bliss by Gemma Villegas and published by Monsa publications, alongside the work of nine other great illustrators.
My illustration and pattern are published in the new issue of the Natural Parent Magazine.
I just received my copy of the new issue of Flow magazine with my illustrations inside!
In the summer of 2015 I began to illustrate again after a long break. I had just become a mother for the first time and this gave me a lot of new inspiration. I began to draw again every evening and quickly found the style I work in now. I discovered my love for mixing different patterns and began to experiment with collage, ink and fineliners and my collection of personal work grew more and more.
I feel so happy to look through the work and process I’ve had in the last two years! To see your work bound together in a beautiful book is so much different than browsing through your illustrations on your computer. To have a physical object that I can look through and show to others, feels really special.
When I received the book (only one week after my order, shipped from the US to Europe!) I was so surprised with the high quality of the cover and the paper. I choose ProLine uncoated paper and the quality was even higher than I expected. The paper is thick, matte and a little textured, which makes it feel like high-end drawing paper. The ImageWrap cover feels really smooth and also has a beautiful matte finish. The colours of the prints are perfect, exactly the same as in the photos I uploaded. So it represents my illustrations beautifully!
My book is filled with everyday moments, from not knowing what to wear in the morning to setting the table for dinner. I’ve drawn especially a lot of women and scenes from motherhood the last two years and I can't wait to see what my next book of illustrations will look like, because I will definitely be making a book of personal works again next year!
