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 Longstocking? Astrid Lindgren, the author grew up here and many of her stories are set in the surroundings of Vimmerby.
Most of my inspiration I get from nature. My desire is never to copy nature, it stands for it self. My desire is to depict it in my own “language” and celebrate it my own way.I want my art to be simple and minimalistic. I don`t want to complicate things. Instead reduce than adding more.
In my work I want to highlight the unseen and seek a balance between control and the unforeseen. My seeking for the abstract surface in balance with depth and the beauty of imperfection. That is central to my art.
Education: Craft and design at Grimslöv folk high school, art at Sundsgården folk high school, textile craft at Helliden folk high school, textile design at the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås.
