Cecilie Ellefsen

By Koseli.

A few weeks ago I introduced a new series to spotlight favorite pinners and find out what inspires them most. Here’s the second post in the series — nicely coinciding with Gabrielle trip to Norway. Enjoy!

We’re so excited to feature fabulous pinner, Cecilie Ellefsen. She’s a Norwegian illustrator living and working in Oslo. Here‘s what she has to say about her colorful and whimsical aesthetic:

Growing up in a rural part of Norway, nature and animals have always inspired me. The feeling of finding that secret childhood forest with enchanted critters, hollow trees, traps and hideaways fascinates and inspire me. I love to draw and always bring my sketchbook with me. When I`m not drawing, I like to eat good food, watch strange animated films and visit fleamarkets to find treasures for my ever growing collections.”

We asked her to pick a couple of her favorite recent pins and share just why she loves them.

Miniature Matches
Kokeshi matches. Who can resist tiny things with faces on them, right?

 Tilly and Gul

Sircus elefant scene by Fideli Sundqvist. LOVE her work!!

Beautiful. You know I can’t resist tiny things AND objects with faces! Thank you, Cecilie. If you’d like to follow Cecilie’s whimsical boards, you can find them here.

Do you have favorites on Pinterest? We’d love to hear.
