Petra Börner is a Swedish artist who lives and works in London, where she also studied fashion at Central Saint Martin’s. Driven by a desire to draw and illustrate from a young age, her award-winning work feature through collaborations with clients worldwide, but her main focus has grown into creating and exhibiting her personal work.
She explores her work through a range of media including work on paper, painting, ceramics and short films, but at the heart of her practice is a passion for drawing. Her determined lines spell an emotive narrative, absorbed from her surroundings, often referencing natural themes.

About the postcard artworks
These three paintings are part of larger series; Power Flower and Floral Faces. Inspired by natural power and the fine line between fragility and perseverance, the work was created as a celebration of the natural world.
