My work is about creating prints and illustrations, mostly based around narratives. I’m using a combination of medias with an end result of a digital image that can be used as prints or illustrations.
During this year, I’ve had different texts about love as a starting point, especially Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I focused on the theme of love in the forest during the night with all the magic that occurs in the play. I later twisted the idea of the theme love all around. I used that same theme but chose to portray the dark side. What inspired me that time was a quote by Oscar Wilde; ”The heart was meant to be broken”. This was done by using symbols often connected to love but I’ve been giving them a different meaning.
