petra's studio


1. what is your occupation?

i am an artist/illustrator/designer i guess

2. explain the background/story behind three of the items in your photo.
so, one of the most inspiring pieces in my studio is the green painting (which i am also doing some weird posing with) my friend neil gilks made for my birthday last year. the textile samples is what I am working on today. they will be part of an eclectic box of inspiration, in collaboration with my friend and textile genius daniel reynolds. colored paper is one of my favorite things, so i collect it wherever i go, new and old.

3. what are three of your favorite places for finding things for your home?

oh well, the best place for me to find treasures is at yearly flea-markets in the swedish countryside during the summertime.
myrorna (charity shop/ salvation army) malmoe- ystad vagen (sweden)
emmaus björkå (charity shop) kirseberg, malmoe (sweden)
columbia flower market has a tiny flea-market on a Sunday morning (london)

4. what are three things on your wish list?

i guess this is not the space for wishing for eternal love, happiness and peace..?
the soundtrack for the roy anderson movie 'en kärlekshistoria' ('a love story') from the 70's, which is a great and beautiful film.
coffee or and tea cups to go with my stig lindberg crockery collection, 'blomma' from the 30's (i have never seen them!).
a nice, big black chalk board for my studio, it seems fun to sketch ideas on.
