I grew up in a small town called Uddevalla on the west coast of Sweden and have ever since my childhood always loved to draw, paint and to be creative. But it was first as an adult, when I moved to Gothenburg and after a few years at art school, that I knew that I wanted to be an artist. It was so much fun to be creative all day! “Once you pop, you can’t stop! This is what I want to do every day of the week!” After graduating at Gothenburg art school in 2013, I started my own business SWART (Sanna Wieslander ART) which I’ve been working with full time ever since.
I mainly work with designing art prints and posters. I love to play with my imagination, draw and combine different motifs to new and mysterious creatures. So you have to think a little. “What is this?” Through the years I’ve also been working with several different companies, illustrating motives for porcelain, clothing, wallpaper, advertising and at some occasions I’ve also been decoration walls and painting big murals.
SWART is today a “one woman show”. All aspects of running this business are made by me from my studio in Gothenburg, Sweden. Everything from marketing, customer service, shipping and of course the creation of my illustrations and art prints. It’s so varying and fun and nothing has ever felt so right!
Do you have any questions about my work, or are you might a retailer or would like to collaborate in any way? Don’t hesitate to contact me or swing by my studio for a cup of coffee! :)
