The multi-talented Maria Ellermann has a varied work life. The world shejuggles consists of everything from soft, often dramatic, brushstrokeson canvases, large wall paintings, to living models in front of the cameraand creative artwork.
"I like to alternate and mix the different modes of expression. It bringsa strong energy into my work life. In the beginning when I had just chosen tostart my own business, I was worried whether the broadness of my work areaswould make me look unprofessional and unfocused, but it has really never beena problem. Honestly, probably the reverse.
"No matter what type of visual task I throw myself into, the starting point isalways to communicate atmospheres and individual stories. I pay attention todetails and when dealing with graphic artwork, I often start by makingfree-hand drawings. By that, I can quickly encapsulate the story.
Maria is the artist behind TO BE Continued’s figurative logo. The logois a surreal fusion of a pencil, a bird and the tail of a fish –andconnects architectural lines with the joy of storytelling and‘the twisted element’."The creative life unfolds in Maria’s allotment hut and in the joint office,‘Syndikatet’, in the centre of Aalborg. The two different worlds – with bothinwardly and outwardly focused roles – suits Maria well.The locations provide inspiration, each in their own ways.
