Stina Persson is a very talented illustrator based in Stockholm, Sweden. She was born in Lund, Sweden and has studied Fine Arts in Italy, Perugia and fashion drawing in Florence, and also has a degree in illustration from Pratt Institute in New York.
She has worked for many prestigious companies and magazines around the world. Her work incorporates and combines many different techniques, watercolor, acrylic and ink, cut paper and photos.
I find her work very beautiful, elegant, with strong female elements, but an edgy side as well. Here you can check out her site.
