Ellen Portin

The artist Ellen Portin presents herself:

My name is Ellen and I come from Nykarleby in Finland, I live in Stockholm since 2017. In 2019 I’ll get my degree in packaging design. I knew early on that I wanted to have a creative profession and I am still completely sure that I have found the right business for me. I love the first phase of a new project, find inspiration, try out different colours, get frustrated and then get back on track again.

Graphic designer has been my dream job for a long time but in recent years I have also become more and more interested in illustrations. I often use strong colours and get excited when I find new unexpected colour combinations. When I am not scrolling Pinterest or drawing I like to hang out with my boyfriend and cat and do some yoga now and then.

Bringing new life to poster art! The Finnish illustrator Ellen Portin is in other words a part of Come to Finland’s effort to create a renaissance for the almost forgotten genre of poster art.
