Linn Byrkjeland is a Finnish artist born in 1991 in Vaasa. The starting point for her work is color and a fascination to create a story through images. Her work is intuitive and her paintings and drawings are a part of a story filled with adventures and dreams that has started to take shape these last few years.
At the moment Linn Byrkjeland is studying for her Masters of Fine Arts degree in Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, Sweden. Previously she has studied art in Tromsø Academy of Arts (Bachelor in Contemporary Art), Funen Art Academy (Exchange student) and Vapaa Taidekoulu (Painting).
Her artistic practice consists mainly of painting and drawing at the moment. She loves to explore shapes and lines through drawing: "when I pick up my brush to dive into the painting process, I'm full of new energy and curiosity. The painting process for me is both physical and meditative. Letting go and letting the hand speak as well as going in and creating definiton and detail. Ending up in both mythologically charged and every day life shapes. An invitation into the universe I'm creating."
