My name is Elin Bjork, normally called Elín, but I have since the spring, 2005, choosed to use the name Bjork on my pictures, just as my dear grandmother wanted.
I have always liked drawing and painting, drawing was
my favorite for a long time, or until I got to know the oil around 1992-3. Bissyness and childcaring was though in the first place, so I
only painted few painting a year, until the spring 2005.
Now I am creating a lot more, thanks to a very good friend of
mine, who brought pencils and watercolours to me and told me to get
And now I´m here, more poverful than ever, enjoying
painting most days of the week. My favorite subject is the woman body and the
soft lines, strong lively colours and feelings. With a spatel or a
pencil in my hand I paint whatever the spirit brings to me, both
pictures allready formed in my head as well as the pictures I see
inside the canvas. The oil is my favorite, but I like trying new
things, acryl, watercolours, pastel.......
Until now I´ve been a little shy and not brought my
paintings to the public, but aging and experience have tought me you
should always follow your dreams, make them happen! So now my dream
has come true, I am living it!!
