Lotta Jansdotter's illustrations are like little plants working their way through cracks in the sidewalk. Things of simple beauty that bring relief to the urban landscape. Her genius lies in exploring the beauty of everyday things. Drinking coffee from a pretty cup, writing notes on a hand printed card, dressing your child in the clothes you made him. Lotta’s aesthetic is deeply rooted in the Scandinavian landscape. She was born in 1971 on Åland, an archipelago between Sweden and Finland. Today she works out of her Brooklyn studio. Her philosophy: Can’t find what you want? Make it! Don’t know how? Learn it!
