Hi, my name is Victoria! During 2018-2020 I worked as an in-house illustrator for a county museum and have just completed Bergh's illustration course 2020.
With a background and education in the teaching profession and art (HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design, Gothenburg) I now illustrate on assignment. Character, story and food are my main areas and preferably with a focus on children and teenagers. Also animation / GIF! I use strong colors and soft shapes in my illustrations, but I like to vary according to the text content and the concept. Humor is often present in my work, sometimes tragicomic with a certain darkness at the edge.
I like to get acquainted with facts in history, science, literature and civics. I visualize situations in front of me when I read something exciting!
The interpersonal and everyday life that runs through history and our present time, is what makes me curious and triggers my imagination. In pedagogy, it's developmental psychology that interests me the most and with a focus on play, creative expression and inspiration. Is this important when I illustrate? The short answer is that it colors my approach and perspective on life!
