Erica von Essen


Hi! I'm Erica.

Lovely to have you here!

I’m an artist from Sweden, based in the beautiful north. I create peaceful art daily using historical processes mixed with embroidery, from my garden studio, surrounded by nature.

I have a passion to explore different kinds of historical printing and photographic techniques and combined with embroidery, it adds so much magic and calmness to my life.


I work with techniques like cyanotype, suminagashi, polaroid and pinhole photography that are guided by light and water because it makes me connect with nature in a new magical way.

My works are all sprinkled with the power of nature and calm, and I'm so glad I get to share it with you!
