Ylva Skarp

Ylva Skarp is a Swedish calligraphy artist and designer. With brush in hand, she uses her creativity to turn calligraphy into patterns, shapes and forms. She mixes traditional Swedish craftmanship with contemporary ideas and styles to create unique pieces for the home.

Educated at Roehampton Institute in London, she worked for 15 years as a professional calligraphy artist and designer. She then decided to set up her own company and design her own range of unique artworks and cushions. 

Ylva calls Leksand, a small town in central Sweden, home and is proud to call her work 100% Swedish.

Ylva says-

"some elements may be a bit unexpected, but I can’t stand perfection – things need to be a little irregular"

"I like the thought of creating a striking image that also conveys a message"

Above: more pics of Ylva's beautiful, characterful home. Love the dark wall against the limewashed floors, the calligraphy on the wall, cushions, rug, and the soft, calming, muted colours
