My name is Sandra Hultsved and I am a self-taught artist, based in Stockholm, Sweden. I create art from my emotions and depict stories about dark romance, melancholy and unfortunate events, which gives a sense of quiet desperation. I draw my artworks mainly with graphite pencils and ink, with great inspiration from nature - particularly the forests of Värmland, where I grew up.
The real dark place for me is the reality, there’s too much crap in this world and sometimes I can’t take no more. Therefor I flee into my own fairytale world and to my art, then I can endure a little bit longer. Art has always been my form of therapy and the only true way for me to express my inner feelings.
I’m open for commissions and freelance work. Currently I’m seeking gallery representation.

And above you can see my finished artwork for the Astral deck! I got the card 6 of Swords. I was rather stunned how well the chosen card for me suited with what my life was right then. The card interpret: moving towards another place, leaving difficult times behind, which is just what I was going to do. Now I have moved in to our new home with a whole different lifestyle. The card can also be interpreted as: It may not feel like you are moving forward, but you are, things will get better even though you can’t see it right now. I had a very difficult time dealing with depression then and didn’t quite know what to do to make it better. But at last I collected my courage to quit my job and move. That’s just what I needed. Therefore I could very much relate to this card. I pictured her float in water toward a bright supernova, symbolizing that recovery and travel. She is passively floating with the water stream, towards a brighter future, leaving the dark to the pass, she may not realize it yet, but she is moving forward.
