Stina Persson uses ink, watercolor or collages with cut papers to create a style that is both vivid and elegant. She fuses the traditional with the edgy to introduce a modern look to illustration — a look that is appreciated by numerous clients including BALLY, Nike, SONY, The McCartney family, Hearst, Louis Vuitton, Veuve Clicquot, L’Oréal and Vogue, among others.

She finds inspiration from city streets, thrifts stores but increasingly yearns for the organic shapes and forms found in nature. Hanging out in the family country cottage in Östergötland gets to be more and more an integral part of her process, finding beauty in leaves, flowers and insects.
