My name is Anita Sølver, and I’m a freelance illustrator, located near Viborg, Denmark. Born 1970, married to Tom, and I have 2 wonderful children, plus 4 amazing bonuskids. I have been drawing my whole life, and since 2007, it has also been my fulltime job. I love every second of it!
When I’m not working, I’m caring for sphynx cats, which has been a big part of my life since the first two moved in in 2010. Now there’s 4 of them, and they occupy both my mind, home and office with purring love. They are the most magnificent animals, and are part of the family. Besides that, I also carries a big love for Disney. Owns every classic ever made, have been to Disneyland Paris innumerous times and have a home filled with Disney characters, and no plants 😉 That’s just me in a nutshell.
I’m self taught, and had a 10 year drawing break, when I became a mom. I started back up in 2002 little by little, after I discovered many kindred spirits online. My husband encouraged me to get back to the drawing board, and it kicked my motivation in gear. After some years with smaller freelancejobs here and there, I have since 2007 drawn freelance full time.
I continue to take relevant courses online, and am constantly trying to improve my skills, learn something new and develop in my style and techniques.
I’m very passionated about children related products. My first adventure into that genre, was my illustrations made for Bella Sara, a trading card game with horse motifs aimed at young girls. Between 2011 and 2013, I was also the sole illustrator on a project from Danish Euromic; Isabella & Friends.
It took me some time, to get used to drawing for children in the first place, but now, I simply can’t imagine anything better. It’s amazing to be a part of creating something for children. They are our future. To be able to create something that will enlighten their day, send out positive thoughts and vibrations into the world is simply the best! In my free time I create children’s books with Patrick Stemp who is a Canadian author. You can find our books on Frogburps.com
I don’t have a “signature”-style per se. I have always loved to explore new styles and love to try out new things, to see what goes with the type of illustration I like to do. I largely only draw digitally now, even though I once in awhile, dust of my analogue medias, but that’s a rare occasion. I love my Cintiq, and I love Photoshop. I work in Adobe Illustrator too, but Photoshop is a second home to me.
Please feel free to contact me, if you have a project you need illustrations for. I work digitally, and can deliver files online for you. It’s not getting much easier than that 🙂
