Welcome to LilyCrow

I was born August 1.st 1968 in Salo, Finland. In 1979 I moved with my mother to Sweden, where I've been living and working since then. During my childhood and my youth I was always drawing and painting. For my education I chose to study civil engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden and I am therefore an autodidact in the area of art.

I have always loved to work with portraits and another area of interest is horror, or gothic, art. I find my inspiration in various sources. Sometimes it is a person that fascinates me, other times it can be for example human behaviour, psychology, religious beliefs, music, a movie, art, a feeling or a personal experience. I have found great inspiration in the art of Marilyn Manson and the lowbrow artist Mia Makila, to mention just a couple among many.

I use various techniques in my visual, artistic expression, from pencil-drawing and painting in water colour, acrylics or oil to mixed media collages and digital assemblages. I like the variation and I feel that sometimes a certain motif demand a specific technique.

P.S. I also do commissioned work. Feel free to contact me if you're interested…
