Amelie Hegardt is an artist, illustrator, and associate lecturer. Originally from Stockholm, Sweden she now lives and works in London, England. Her work has been shown across the world in books and on buildings.
Some of her notable clients include Elle, Harrods, MAC Cosmetics, Marie Claire, and Vogue. Alongside her commercial endeavours, Hegardt currently teaches Life Drawing and Fashion Illustration at the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins.
Working across different mediums, Hegardt remains committed to the art of classical illustration. Drafting everything by hand. Regularly using brushes, watercolour, graphite, pastels, and ink. She focuses on conveying power, expression, humour, and sexuality. Hegardt combines a solid life drawing foundation with intuition. And style with emotion.
In the best scenarios, ultimate chaos erupts when I create.
