Swedish artist Anette Lillhammar receive energy from her subconscious, practicing meditation before commencing any creative work. She doesn't predeterminate what is going to be painted. She chooses colors intuitively and feed the canvas with color, energy and structure. She uses acrylic on linen canvas. Sometimes she stops and wait for the "art goddess" to come and wake the painting to life. After a while faces and odd symbols appears. Works that tells the sentiments felt by the figures represented. Anette through a figure I call sublime tells the observer her stories. Stories whose beauty seduces the eyes of the observer, who cannot do anything but observe them with dreamy eyes. The fine texture and the cultured language make thes works true masterpieces. Her artwork has been shown in galleries in Sweden, USA, Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, Germany and Greece. Her artwork have been published in Art books/magazines and she has received a numerous International Art Awards. In 2020 she will be represented in the prestigious Italian catalog "50 International Contemporary Artists To Invest In". She is also represented in
