Elin Matilda Andersson is a Swedish-Australian illustrator, artist and designer based on Dharawal Country, nestled between the bush and the ocean south of Sydney.

Originally hailing from the pine forests of Sweden, she moved to Australia in 2009 and completed a BA in Communication Design in Sydney in 2012.

Elin’s background in graphic design has shaped her current illustration practice, where she blends humor and heart using digital and analogue techniques. During a decade working as a full-time illustrator, Elin has had the opportunity to deliver on a wide range of creative briefs, including ad campaigns, animations, murals, books, magazines and packaging projects.

With a passion for storytelling, her work is driven by the idea that creativity can be used as a tool for bettering society in small and large ways—even if it's just putting a smile on someone’s face or igniting conversation. She believes that diversity in representation is essential, and loves drawing people expressing their unique, best selves in weird and wonderful ways.

Her major influences are her Scandinavian roots and the wonder of Australian nature; the power of community building; and watching her four-year-old daughter take on the world.

Elin Matilda is represented by Wei Productions in Scandinavia and The Jacky Winter Group in the rest of the world.
