Hello there!

I am Birgitte, a Norwegian freelance illustrator, artist and designer.

For as long as I can remember I have been creating and drawing. In order to hone my skills I focused on art during my upper secondary education, and later went to study design and illustration at university.

Creating art and illustrations is my passion, as is creating imagery which others can relate to, be it through illustrating different topics, ornamental imagery such as portraits. Most of my work is created digitally, sometimes to mimic traditional mediums. I also tend to utilise limited colour palettes in my work where appropriate, which I find to be more of an inspiration than hindrance.

If you’re a in the market for an image to illustrate your story or project, or a portrait of your favourite person or pet, then I’m your gal. I work on both private commissions and corporate projects, and produce work to the given specifications, and to the set deadlines.


Please get in touch if you’d like to commission me by sending an email to hello@birgittejohnsen.com, providing some details about the project you have in mind.

My work elsewhere

Social media

Of course, like most artists and illustrators I also utilise social media. On my Instagram account you find regular posts, usually personal projects and work in progress shots, which also sometimes get uploaded to Twitter, where there are also some general chatter. My work is also posted to both Dribbble, and ArtStation. On top of that I also have a Patreon account where supporters get exclusive content and early access to process videos. The process videos, sans Patreon exclusives, are also uploaded to my YouTube channel.


I also offer prints of many of my images can be found in my InPrnt shop. Sadly I cannot add all my images to my shop, so if there’s a specific print you’re after that isn’t in my shop, please send me a mail (hello@birgittejohnsen.com).

Other products

I also sell other products, including t-shirt, through TeePublic and Threadless. And again, if there’s any of my work or designs you’re missing, drop me a line (hello@birgittejohnsen.com), and I’ll see if I’ll be able to make them available for you.
