About

My name is Cecilia Andersson. I grew up in a tiny village, not far from the small town Vimmerby, in the small country of Sweden.

Have you heard of Pippi LongstockingAstrid Lindgren, the author grew up here and many of her stories are set in the surroundings of Vimmerby. Now I live in Höör another small town in Sweden.

I grew up with the forest surrounding and most of my inspiration I get from there. I love nature and animals as they often appear in my art and design. My desire is never to copy nature, it stands for itself. My desire is to depict it in my own “language” and celebrate it my own way.

I use different techniques in my work because I like mixing different materials. Photography I’ve always been interested in but see my self more as a curious amateur with a lot to learn.

In this blog I will write, but most of all show pictures on everything from my working process to the finished work. Hope you will like what you see, but above all I want to inspire. I think everyone has some sort of talent for creativity and for me it is vitally necessary.

Education: I studied textile design at the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås.

  1. Hello Cecilia it is nice to see your work. I am similar to you in that I like to use all sorts of mixed media. I am currently exploring abstract art which you will see a little of if you look at my blog. I have done lots of collage work and get excited about fitting found images into art works – I am now discovering the same feeling with abstract art – finding images or should I say shapes that work together. I look forward to seeing more art from you.

    1. Hello Anne, thank you for being interested in my art. Great that we have similar approach when it comes to art and abstract art. I took a quick look at your blog and found it interesting, so I will be back!

  3. Har ditt tulpantryck hemma och tycker det är helt fantastiskt, min syster har också fastnat för det så tänkte köpa det åt henne när hon fyller år. Tycker det vore jättekul att köpa originalet till henne, om det finns kvar och är till salu. Eller om du kan måla något liknande igen, det verkar ju vara ett mönster du tycker om att leka med 🙂 Kontakta mig jättegärna! Och igen, du är fantastiskt duktig!
