My name is Silje Kristín ("Sil-yeah Kristine", in case you're wondering). That's me over there. I'm an Illustrator.
I'm from Iceland and Norway, and currently living in London. I studied at Winchester School of Art in South England for a BA (Hons) in Graphic Arts, specialising in Illustration.
I've always been a very practical person, which caused me to always struggle to think of my work being displayed on a wall. It started to make much more sense, and to become much easier to create, when I looked at it in the context of products - something you can touch, handle, use - instead of being purely decorative. So now I create designs and illustrations for apparel, accessories, gift- and homeware. (And sometimes for the wall too!)
I'm a very lighthearted person so most of the time, my illustrations are too. I like my work best when it's a little silly!
The main tools of my trade are the pencil and my computer. I have many years of experience with Photoshop and Clip Studio, a good knowledge of InDesign, and I'm learning Illustrator. I accept clients from all over the world, so don't be shy.
If you'd like to talk about a commission or a print/product, or just want to have a chat, please don't hesitate to contact me. I promise that I won't bite.
