Linnea's work aims to explore the unexpected, & to do so with a sense of humor. Creating off-the-wall combinations; heavily inspired by symbolism, surrealism, murder mysteries and crime fiction, Linnea’s designs are conceptually highly ambitious. Her work generally follow a story line and narrative, inviting the viewer into her world of the weird and wonderful, garishly colourful or starkly monochrome, always thoughtful and inspired. She draws inspiration from fine art, design, graphics, illustration, photography and fashion. Linnea works internationally on both commercial and editorial shoots, interiors, product launches, events and parties, window displays and exhibitions. Her work is both small and large scale, and she creates hand made props with uttermost precision and attention to detail.
