Welcome to a

My name is Johanna Stark, I work freelance from Malmö, Sweden, but love to travel the world for inspiration and adventure - so sometimes I work from places with nicer climate!


My patterns and illustrations often revolve around humans relationship to nature. Everyday I am amazed by animals and plants and what they give us, and I aim to share a little bit of that amazement in my design. Growing up in the forest in the south of Sweden gave me a lot of respect for nature and the changing seasons, and this is where I often return to for inspiration (although a tropical theme usually takes over when I travel to warmer places).


I recently graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, in Copenhagen.


If you are interested in licensing some patterns, buying some handmade screenprints or collaborating in some way - don’t hesitate to get in touch!


Much love,
