Meet the artist behind the art posters

We have had a quick chat with Linn to get to know her and her art a little better.

1. Can you tell us a little about your background and how you became an artist?

I am originally a graphic designer, at least that was the education I endured the longest, but I have always been fond of drawing and doing creative things. After working freelance as a designer for a while, I realized that I was actually best suited to be my own boss. The worst thing about being a designer is "bad" feedback. And I'm generally bad at criticism.. hehe..

Instagram became my platform to promote my drawings, and it worked! It's absolutely fantastic to be able to make exactly what I want, and then sell it. But I would probably never have been able to do this if it hadn't been for the graphic background. There is a crazy amount of things about selling your own products in terms of self-profiling, sales and marketing that people don't think about.

2. What inspires you most when you make art posters?

Oh, it can be so many! I love Pinterest and Instagram as sources of inspiration. I can scroll away for hours there. I don't look that much at other artists and what they do, but I can look at everything from fashion to animal and nature pictures to get elements from several different quarters. Love it!

3. How do you describe your style, and what kind of message do you try to convey through your artwork?

After all, I have a fairly naturalistic style, while at the same time I like to add elements that make you see that they are drawings. I often get comments that it looks like pictures, but if you look a little closer you quickly see that it is not. Messages are a little more difficult, because I have taken a slightly more "popular" line when it comes to my art. It should be nice to look at, it should evoke good feelings and perhaps details you didn't notice at first. I'm probably more the "pleasant" artist than the one who aims to provoke.

4. Can you tell us about a particular art poster you made and what it means to you?

In a way, my art posters become a timeline for me. I've been at it for a few years now, and looking back at which pictures were made when also gives a small clue as to what some of them symbolize. I have a picture called "Anne" that is very close to me. It is named after my mum who passed away a few years ago. It was made during a period when I felt that I was drowning in my own thoughts and uncertainty, and is probably still the image that is most important to me.

5. What do you think is most important for people to think about when choosing art posters for their homes?

First of all, I think people need to think a little less when it comes to this particular thing. We meet so many people who have problems choosing what to put on the wall simply because they overthink. And then they end up going years without bringing anything up. I think the most important thing is to follow your gut. If you see a picture you like, buy it. That is what is so nice about art posters, that they are in a more reasonable price range. Then there are opportunities to experiment a bit.

6. What are your future plans and goals as an artist?

I hope we can eventually see a larger market share abroad as well. Do some exciting exhibitions and also become more established with the original works I create. After all, we had our first exhibition in autumn 2022 and it definitely added flavor. At least one thing is certain - I've only just begun!

7. Finally, what would you say to people who are considering buying one of your art posters for their home?

Do it! Not only do you please an oversensitive artist's heart, but I believe and hope that you will be satisfied. Based on the feedback we receive from customers, there is no reason to believe otherwise! ❤️
