Sweden
♥ 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.

Another update, that's right, I'm still lurking here although it happens quite seldom still. I am always overwhelmed by the sweet words and likes I find as I return, knowing I've been bad at updating since becoming a mother of two lovely girls. They are now 2 and 4 so time flies, doesn't it? Lately I've been writing a lot of manuscripts, so there has been very little recent art happening over all, but I do update my website www.anneliolanderberglund.com from time to time, feel free to check it out. I also try to stay as active as I can on ello, I love the space, free from commercial ads and weird algorithms. 

This year has all been about re-focusing my work, now that both my kids go to kindergarten, and I've finished and sent a manuscript to a publisher, working on a second and third now. I'm also working on an illustrated book but it will take some time to finish and I can't show you anything at this time. 

My hair that used to be blonde, then blue, is now a natural color which means a weird brown with broad strokes of natural white in it. Apparently my genes think it's a good time to go white at age 35, but hey, it's kinda cool so let's roll with that. 

Fall is coming, my favourite time of year minus the colds pestering us in Sweden. The first week we have cold weather it's always like a lottery. Will it be a day or a week until my kids come down with a fever? This year we'll see, they do get older and their immune system gets stronger. Also we moved from the heart of Stockholm to the outskirts. I now live in a 100+ years old house with wooden floors that creak when you walk over it. I love it here, and it's easier to work and find peace.

Sending you much love,
let me know how you've been.
xoxo

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.
