For Eva Armisén, creating art is like coming home – a place where she goes for comfort and shelter whenever she needs it. Whether painting, ceramics, engraving or sculpture, all of Eva's work begins with emotion. Feel and experience something, then translate it into a work of art. His paintings serve as a visual diary, elevating everyday life and narrating inner thoughts and dreams. They allow viewers to connect with their own emotions, remember their childhood or maybe cherish those little moments that are often overlooked. It's amazing how with just a few simple lines, Eva Armisén is able to create such emotive faces. A small curved smile speaks of hope, optimism and innocence. A shy child often found it easier to draw or write her feelings than to talk about them. Eva Armisén credits an art teacher for showing her how to communicate through painting. From an early age, she discovered how art strengthened her with a sense of freedom. She also feels lucky to have her parents' unconditional support in her artistic ambitions.
