My name is Ida Jensen.
I am an illustrator, with a BA in Illustration from Cambridge School of Art. Currently based in Norway.

I love creating images from myths, something that isn't that closely defined. Either with delicate watercolour painting, harsh ink drawings or something completely text-based.

I'm nostalgic at heart and yearns for that old tactile feel of the raised ink in drawings, and the subtlety a wash of watercolour can do with an image. As well as the rushed but beautiful marks of a simple pencil.

I guess this doesn't really say much about my "biography", but this is was I want to do. Create images that can get someone to stop a look, and let their imagination carry them away. And I think that is more important than listing where I've been and what happened throughout my life.
