MEET THE ILLUSTRATOR

Sofia Venstad

I am a 20 years old girl from Latvia ,but moved to Norway as a young girl and lived there for fourteen years. When I was little girl, at approximately age of nine, I enjoyed being creative express myself on paper with coloring and details using graphite pencils and later on acrylics.

 

I drew many cartoons and later on created more realistic art, everything from animals to portraits and nature. When I was twelve, I won a Lions Club drawing contest. The idea was to draw something  about “Imagine Peace.” My drawing won the best in Norway. The original drawing is now in New York.

 

I was encouraged to continue drawing. I decorated my school with paintings and have sold art throughout the world.

 

I am currently a college student in Oslo, Norway at Fag Skolen Kristiania, where I study illustration. I have a dream to become a well-known artist, who inspires others,  creating my own technique and style, and create animation and cartoons in America.
