Sofie Børsting

"It is often, in a slow and meditative drawing process, that the unexpected happens, and an idea, or a dream takes form on the paper."

Those are the words of Copenhagen-based illustrator and designer Sofie Børsting. After many years of working in the design industry she finally followed her dream and created an illustrated line of products in 2011. They quickly took off, and are now sold in some of the finest designshops in Scandinavia and around the world.

Her work ranges from botanical illustration to a more abstract line of work. Sofie describes her work as graphic poetry with a hint of fairytales. The very detailed artwork is created from a combination of carefully hand drawn botanical elements, collage and gouache.

The new collection is a mix of graphic and poetic illustrations in calming grey tones, with stories of sensuous imagery from an botanical universe in twilight. Her inspirations are found in nature, dreams, art and childhood memories.

The illustrations and products propose to be used in the home to create new atmospheric oases, together with items such as plants, sculptures and design.
