Linn Wold

Nice to meet you

Hi, I’m
Linn Wold, an artist from Norway. I begun my journey in 2013 and is still going strong today.

Originally, I'm a graphic designer—that’s the education I stuck with the longest. However, I've always loved drawing and engaging in creative activities. After freelancing as a designer for a while, I realized that being my own boss suited me best.

Instagram became my platform to promote my drawings, and it worked! It’s fantastic to create exactly what I want and then sell it.

What inspires you the most when creating art posters?

Oh, it can be so many things! I love Pinterest and Instagram as sources of inspiration. I can scroll for hours. I don’t focus much on other artists and what they do, but I look at everything from fashion to animal and nature pictures to gather elements from different sources. I love it!

How would you describe your style, and what kind of message do you try to convey through your artwork?

My style is quite naturalistic, yet I like adding elements that make it clear they are drawings. I often get comments that my work looks like photos, but upon closer inspection, it's clear they are not. Conveying a message is a bit tougher because my art leans towards a more "popular" line. It should be nice to look at, evoke good feelings, and perhaps reveal details you didn’t initially notice. I’m definitely more of a "pleasant" artist than one who provokes.

My goal is to create art that evokes something special while remaining accessible and understandable for everyone. We achieve this by selling high-quality art featuring the motifs Linn draws on her digital drawing tablet, often combined with traditional techniques.
