Artist Word, Painting

Alice Wellinger

Every week ArtisticMoods invites an artist to tell us something about the ambitions behind their work. This week we give the word to Austria based artist Alice Wellinger, a former graphic designer who creates beautiful, colorful and surreal paintings of all kinds.

As a self taught Illustrator I am a late starter. I worked as a graphic designer for many years. After I gave birth to my twin girls, I began to write and illustrate children’s books. Although these books got published and won some awards (like the Austrian Children’s book prize), I kept eye for new shores. A few years ago I started to work as an editorial illustrator. I like doing this because of the artistic freedom it allows me (most times at least). Each commission is a new challenge.

Besides my editorial illustrations I try to develop my own personal art. Sometimes it is surreal or ironic and it deals with subjects from daily life or from my childhood memories. I always try to tell a little story in my pictures – I like it when people have something to think about. But I never plan anything; I’m open to the ideas that come into my mind spontaneously. When they are bad I forget them, the good ones I paint.
