[artform] interview Linnea Strid

Linnea Strid at work inside her studio in Sweden

“My work is my life, my everything. My paintings are very revealing and I expose everything that is me through them. Don’t know if that’s how they come out, but at least that’s how I see it. Whenever I finish a painting and ship it off to a show or to a prospective buyer a part of me leave with that package.” – Linnea Strid
