Hildur Björnsdóttir was born in 1960 and raised in Iceland. Now she lives and works in Norway and Sweden. She has studied art and graphic techniques over many years in all those countries. The operating force in her art is to describe and express the special energy she finds in the nature in Iceland, and therefore she visits her homeland regularly. She is not confined by one artistic medium; she uses canvas, paper, wood, aluminum, photography, installations and objects in her projects.
