decor8talk: Meet Camilla Engman


decor8: Hi Camilla. First of all, I love your work, especially your paintings and the adorable crochet animals that you make. Can you tell decor8 readers a little bit about yourself?

Camilla: Sure. I’m Camilla Engman and I live and work in Gothenburg, Sweden.

decor8: What do you like about Gothenburg?

Camilla: I like that the four seasons of the year are so different, although I’d prefer if the summer season was a little longer. I love the nature and the easy access of our nature.

decor8: Same here in New England, summers are too short. Tell us, what is your business and how did you get started?

Camilla: I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, artist. I’ve always made pictures. I attended art school for two years, and then spent five years studying Graphic Design at the HDK School of Design and Crafts at Gothenburg University.

decor8: Do you sell your items in any stores online or in the USA?

Camilla: Yes, at different places. I’ve sold my calendar at Moca, calendar and
prints and other stuff at ArtStar Philly, Paperboat Gallery, Reform
School, Compound…. Also artwork at Magpie, Junc Gallery. ArtStar is
the only online shop, I think.

decor8: I love artstar, it’s such a neat shop. Where do you find inspiration? Other artists? Places? Websites?

Camilla: Nature. The past. Galleries. Books. Internet. Different artists in different
moods.

decor8: What are the main characteristics of your work and your work
method?

Camilla: It’s like a snapshot, something is going to or has already happened. A
story interrupted. I don’t have a particular theme that I work with, I just have my ensemble that appears in different shapes.

decor8: How does your work reflect your personality?

Camilla: You can see I’m a very kind person ;)

decor8: Out of all the places you’ve seen in your life, where would you live if money were no obstacle and why?

Camilla: In the swedish summer.

decor8: What are ten things that you can’t live without?

Camilla: Paper, pen, my computer, chocolate, coffee, wine, a sofa, my camera,
my Teva sandals, nature and sun.

decor8: Thank you so much Camilla for taking time to tell us about yourself. Please keep in touch and we wish you the best of success. May your days be creative and your summers, much longer!
