Welcome to Elisabeth Berggren Hansen's webpages!
Welcome to the English page of my webpage.
A little about me:
I have always loved to express myself artistically with charcoal, pencil, brush, or with whatever medium appealed to me at the time. And in the first twenty-one years of my life I focused a 100% on my art. However, as we all know life happens, with its twists and turns and I unfortunately lost a lot of time. Dreams were shattered and I had to reflect on my life choices, as I could not continue at the time with what I loved the most. But the outcome of it all have been that I’ve learned more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, the power of human nature and the will to survive.
My physical state and the time consumption of life have unfortunately kept me from my art over the years. However, I hope this will change now, as my puzzle pieces finally starts to fall into place. My hope is that this page is going to give me the last nudge that I need, so that I finally can plunge my soul into what I love again, ART!
Today I work as a professional web designer, a profession I enjoy greatly. I have room for creativity through the work I do at Early Media. Here I enjoy the possibility of working with different kinds of people with different occupations.
«I most often express myself figuratively through painting, but I also use other ways of expression. My works are like a diary of my life, reflecting what I feel, dream and read, as well as other impressions from the world around me. Although I’m the only one who possess the key to the story behind the pictures, I appreciate that others can see their own story and interpret my pictures in their own way. I use a lot of symbols in my works, often resulting in a slightly surrealistic look.»
