Personally I like to know what people are inspired by when they make art. I find it hard sometimes to be open on social media, it feels like I’ve hit an internet border. In my illustrations you might see what inspires me, like my vegetable garden, my dog, Ilva, and my kitchen. But in my new illustrations you see a side of me that I haven’t shown before. This first illustration is the gym.
It was a place I hardly went until 3 years ago; I lost a lot of weight and wanted to be stronger. Losing that weight was a thing for me, I’ve been dieting since I was 12 years old and now I’m 30. So 18 years of dieting experience, reading books about body types, watching documentaries about sugar and everything I shouldn’t eat. I started to go many times a week, mostly very early in the morning before going to my studio. I’ve loved working out, but I’ve also learned you can go too hard, so I’m trying to put balance back into my life as well.
