Get to know Linda

I’m a mythical artist based in the Norwegian mountains.

My work gives you more than just a pretty thing to hang on your wall. My mission is to connect you to nature, magic and myth within your external space…while connecting to your own authentic internal personal expression.

I make bird drawings, wildlife paintings and Scandinavian landscape paintings as well as paintings and drawings relating to mythology and folklore.

Intuition guides my choices of subject matter and materials. So let your intuition guide you on which pieces speak to you! I paint in acrylics, watercolour and gouache and draw in pencil and coloured pencil.

Born and raised in Sweden, I now live in a small village in the middle of the Norwegian mountains with my daughter, husband, dog, and cat. Here’s me with my daughter. I do my best to raise her well, as any mother would. 
I started drawing as a child and curiosity and creative expression have always been driving forces for me. I taught myself to paint and draw mainly through experimentation and exploration.

In addition to making art, I also enjoy a number of different crafts. As a multi-passionate, I love trying new things and if I haven’t tried a specific craft or art medium yet, I probably will sooner or later 🙂 Maybe with the exception of things my body won’t tolerate, like forging. I doubt my shoulders would like that.

Here are few personal things you might not know about me:

  • I speak 3 languages fluently
  • An avid reader of crime, thriller, horror and fantasy novels
  • Metal music lover
  • Hypermobile (maybe Ehlers-Danlos Hyper-mobile Type, everything else has been checked and the doc’s not sure)
  • Outspoken and opinionated as well as talkative
  • Viking re-enactment events are fun. I even make shoes!

Let’s connect!

The best way for us to really get to know each other is to have a quick, virtual, cup of tea (totally pitch free). If you’re up for it, pick your time below and let’s chat.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Linda, in hardwriting
