Ylfa Grönvold | Fashion Designer / Illustrator
I am an Icelandic born Fashion designer and Illustrator living in Copenhagen, Denmark. My passion for design lies in fashion, weddings, graphics, typography & illustration. Each new project offers me the opportunity to be inspired, to be challenged, to express myself creatively & to develop & hone my skills.
Ever since I was a little girl I would sit and draw for hours, creating new things from nothing. I've always loved designing, sewing clothes for myself and my friends. I would come home from school and rearrange my parents furniture because I loved styling and finding creative solutions. I was lucky enough to grow up in a creative home, where they would encourage my siblings and I to let our creative thoughts shine. Not much has changed since then, I still love designing and spend hours at my desk drawing, sewing and anything else my mind desires.
As I grew up I never actually thought that this was then something I could do, it was the ultimate luxury to be able to do what I love for a living. And art is every part of my life, it is something that i do to relax, it is something that inspires me and I truly enjoy it.
Im really inspired by a lot of different things, and a lot of the times not art things. Sometimes it´s music, colors in nature, fabric that I find, I am very inspired by people and what they wear.
Illustration is essentially an imaginary world, and thats what I love about it. I love to escape into my drawings and draw anything I can dream up.
I love the challenge of producing an image and making it unique to fit my style.
Today I work as an international freelance illustrator. I have enjoyed working with a variety of companies as well as single clients doing customized illustrations. The possibilities are endless and I look forward to see what the future holds.
I hope you enjoy my website!
