2012-05-21 Thank you

Most of you all know that me and my fiance recently lost a common friend of ours in a tragic accident. She was only 20 years old, recently announced she was expecting a baby and also had huge wedding-plans. But, she sadly lost her life too soon and will always be loved and missed. 
I thank you all who earlier beautifully worded your sorrows for our grieving for all of us who knew her 

I will not be online as much here or on the blog as before, you might occasionally see my name around, but I will announce when I am fully back again. I also want to thank World's Best Professional Artist Society for understanding my choice in waiting with fully finish my website and uploading my works there during these hard times. 

Have a lovely summer and I hope you'll all be there whenever I come back again. Be safe and take care of each other 

Lots of Love

2013-05-20 Artist vs Artist-project (Alice in Wonderland)

As you all know - due to a tragic accident me and my fiance have lost a dear friend of ours, and I am going to be on a break from now on. 
But as I've promised before, today is the reveal of the first "Artist vs. Artist"-project with Helena from Life starts with a pencil - by Helena known from Facebook. 
So my dear readers, I give you....

Alice In Wonderland
(Belgium vs. Sweden)

The author of the story is the English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson who first wrote it in  novel-form back in 1865, and was published under the name of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

Belgium's piece
Helena's piece is made with different set of pencils. And it's clear to see that it's her version of the wonderful Disney-movie from 1951.


Sweden's piece










My piece is made with charcoal and different colored chalk. 
All made on A5-sized paper (14,8cm x 21cm)

2013-05-08 Another 01:30 am-night

So now it's time for me to go to bed as I've just finished painting my aunt's birch tree-canvas. When it's fully dried I will upload a photo and show you all.

Also, I know I've promised (at least on my Facebook page) that I'd make a "Secret Silhouette"-project. But for now I will put that on hold, as I am going to do a bigger and more interesting project. So you guys stay patient with me because the wait will be worth it!

Good night from northern Sweden ♥

2013-05-02 Easel is making it easy!

My father went and bought this giant easel for me, just because yesterday I told him I hate how I spend hours sitting and need an easel. 
Due to smaller complications from past heart surgery (cardiac ablation), I can't do long sitting positions because it numbs my right leg and causes bad pain afterwards. Sometimes for days. My father knows this and to ease my pain he bought this easel so I can do my art standing up whenever I paint on canvases ♥

I love my father. He's been one of the greatest supports since I started painting. Always trying to make me better and stronger in everything I do. Always been there for every surgery I've gone through since birth. And I'm proud to be his daughter ♥


2013-05-02 'At the hairdresser's' --> SOLD

Today I've sold another charcoal/chalk drawing of mine.
