Gunnel Ginsburg

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

My name is Gunnel Ginsburg and I am an illustrator with factual drawings as speciality. I have worked a lot with books for all stades in school from the first year up to the university including subjects as languages, sciences, mathematics, medicin and so on as well as illustrations for handbooks, magazines and journals in various subjects as plants and gardening, medicin and health, food and cooking, clothes and knitwear. I have illustrated Flora för grundskolan, Natur och Kultur, Vår trädgårdsbok, Norstedts Förlag. For the book Weeds, recognize and remove, Prisma/Norstedts Förlag I was both illustrator and author I write about plants and gardening for different media. I do also work with patterns for textiles and wallpapers.

Tell us a little about your background. Do you have an education, or are you self-taught?

I studied textile, 4 years, at Konstfack and fashion, 1 year, at Beckmans School of Design. I wanted to be a fashion designer but became an illustrator and a textiledesigner. Now I even give lectures about weeds. I have been a teacher in illustration as well as in fashion- and figure-drawing at Beckmans School of Design. I have lead illustration-workshops in schools.

What part of your creative work do you like the most?

Research is a pleasant part of the creative process. As a factual illustrator I like to study the reality for to find out have things really look like. And then make illustrations of them that are correct but yet personal. My ambition is to make illustrations with both a pedagogical clarity and an artistic value. My originals are handmade but I can deliver them in a digital way.
