My name is Silja and I was born in beautiful Iceland in early 1993.
I‘m an artist and I started this blog to promote my fine art and illustrations. I’ve been drawing and painting since I can remember, and in 2012 I started drawing caricatures for individuals as well as larger groups, and have continued to do so. On this blog you’ll be able to follow me and my artistic journey.
My main subjects to draw are portraits, caricatures, the human body and flowers. When I paint it tends to be abstract and shapes.
From late 2013 to late 2015 I was working and travelling in Australia. That was my first time exploring the world on my own. Since then and until mid May 2016 I traveled through New Zealand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Germany with a very special someone. I’m currently living in England and plan to stay put for a little while. But my travels aren’t over and I don‘t know where the future will take me or where I‘ll end up. I have no idea and that‘s super exciting. I‘m growing and learning new things every day and never want that to stop. I‘m exactly where I need to be at this moment.
This blog is also for me to share other parts of my life with you – my thoughts, dreams and adventures.
