A life of arts is what makes Anna-Karin Karlssons heart beat. Music and painting are essential creative processes, not only inspiration, but the root from which all her work stems. Anna-Karin has been a part of the London underground music scene and produced music alongside her rise as a designer. Solo art exhibitions with her painting happened in 2013. Anna-Karin's unique vision and style is born in the juxtaposition of music, art, and the theatrical. Initially she sees her work as cinematic scenes, visualizing characters, set design, costumes and musical score. She then sketches down the scene in forms and colour, and the design takes shape. Every design has a setting, a name, and a story that goes with it. ”People want things with a heart – with thought and depth – and I want my designs to live a beautiful, romantic life.”
