Artists: Alda Lilja

Alda Lilja is a self-employed illustrator and lives in Amsterdam. Alda was born and raised in Reykjavík, but moved to the UK in 2015 to pursue her dream and go to university, she graduated with a BA (Hons) degree from Arts University Bournemouth in Illustration where she graduated in 2018.
She works on mental health issues and queer issues. She draws inspiration from her own experiences, but also from listening to the experiences of others. She has lived with depression and anxiety most of her life and many of the drawings are stories about her own experience. She approaches issues with light humor, honesty and softness. The drawings are usually processed digitally, but also work with materials such as clay, gouache, and more. Plants and flowers are frequent visitors in Alda's paintings and are a metaphor for mental health, what we water grows and thrives and mental health needs constant attention. The reason and driving force of art is to create connections with people and to help people feel seen and heard.
