Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years. In 2011, Kristjana S Williams began creating fine art pieces, art prints, furniture and more. Williams’s inspiration lies heavily with layering nature upon nature and ‘the symmetry in all things living’, which stems from the artist’s childhood in Iceland. When growing up the artist found nature there stark and unforgiving. Kristjana became fascinated with maps, mythical creatures and Victorian engravings, now sampling these, mixing and matching the old and new to create intricate artworks, such as this digital print, Ros/Two Animal Garden, that continue to reveal themselves long after you first look at them.
