OhAnneli's Profile Picture
Anneli Olander Berglund
Artist | Professional | Varied
♥ Swedish illustrator and artist Anneli Olander grew up in a small town, deep in the thickly forested, copper-rich Swedish province of Värmland -- and later found happiness in the poetic and coffee sipping urban jungle of Stockholm.

She has been freelancing since January 2007 when, at the age of 26, she started her own company A.Olander Illustration. Her favourite quote is "I didn't make it because I was the best- I made it because I couldn't afford to lose".

Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at :
Be Cool gallery in Rome, Italy (2008), Corey Helford Gallery LA, USA (2008) and Friends of Leon Gallery in Sydney, Australia (2011).

More recent ventures have seen her illustrations adorn everything from the iPad skins to iPhone apps, from artisanal chocolates to the pages of ArtNews.

Olander’s illustrations combine a lush painterly sensibility with a darkly playful take on girlish fun and the remixing of fantasy with the everyday.

I've been so bad att answering comments and being active on deviantART, I mean, ok so last time about a year passed, now we're only talking months or weeks haha but still - I'm learning to deal with working on the hours I get in this very busy period of my life.

I'm very happy with my life as it is, but the things I had time to do before I had a baby just doesn't seem to work anymore - like answering comments or updating a lot. I'm not saying it's going to be like this forever, but for now, and for a while. I'm having my second baby this summer, so I'm expecting a year or two with more ghost appearances. But I'll do my best, and I read all your comments when I have time, and they make me feel happy and encouraged. This is life y'all. I'm not feeling sorry for these busy times, I chose this life and it's making  me very happy!

So I can't do everything at the same time (motherhood, promo-queen, painter, illustrator, networking superwoman), but I still managed to get some gallery action and/or features here and there and painting and drawing done each year and that's actually more than I could ever dream of at this time haha

So. Uhm. Yeah. That was what I wanted to say for now. Much love and see you here and there! :heart:

In June 2007 you made a comment that I should not be mysterious and write something about myself.  So about three weeks ago I finally got brave and put some of my stuff on DA.  I didn't write much about myself so there is still a bit of mystery and my stuff is not in your league but I finally went and did it.
