creating important feelings

Hello, my name is Silja and I'm a fine artist, graphic designer & psychology student from Iceland. I make my own original art, draw portraits of your family and pets (& yourself!) and offer graphic design services.


I also have a blog called my creative cortex, where I share my exploration of how art & creativity can make your life better - while also being honest about life as an overthinking introvert, trying to find their place in the world of creativity.

The last 7 years have consisted of lots of travelling and living in various countries, which has greatly influenced my work and why I create it. I want my work to bring people closer together - even when they're (physically) miles apart.
