Self portrait

Hello there!

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

A passion of mine is to produce eye-catching images, and I work across many different topics and disciplines. My experience includes creating illustrations for articles, posters, and products; make designs for posters, packaging, and corporate identity; as well as typesetting for books. Additionally, I paint portraits of people and pets, but also enjoy painting landscapes, and cute animals.

It’s not uncommon for my work to be painted using limited colour palettes; as I find them to be more of an inspiration than hindrance. This also means it’s easy for me to work with companies with set colour palettes, and make sure my colour choices are appropriate for print.

If you’re 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 deadlines.

Contact

If you’re interested in commissioning me for a big or a small project, please get in touch by sending an email to hello@birgittejohnsen.com. Please also provide a little bit of details about the project you have in mind, including possible deadlines.

My work elsewhere

Social media

Of course, my work can also be found on social media. I use Instagram to share personal projects and sometimes even work in progress shots find regular post. Some of this content often also finds its way to Twitter, which, of course, also holds some some general chatter. More curated work is posted to ArtStation and sometimes even makes its way to Dribbble.

But if you’re looking for some behind the scenes content, then I would suggest checking out my Patreon account where supporters get exclusive content and early access to content, including process videos. I also share my process on my YouTube channel, so if you really want to know how I’ve created some of my work was made, have a little look around there.

Prints

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, but if there is a specific image you’re wanting as a print, then please send me a mail (hello@birgittejohnsen.com), and I’ll see what I can do.

Other products

My work is also available on products as well; including t-shirt. Please have a look at my TeePublic and Threadless shops. And again, if there’s any of my work or designs you’re missing, get in touch via (hello@birgittejohnsen.com).
