How it all started
My name is Matilda and I live in Stockholm, Sweden, with my partner and my two kids Vilgot and Siri. While I am a nurse for my day-job, I have always loved drawing and painting and do so in my spare time.
When I had my first baby, Vilgot, I started painting water color sonograms, which in time diversified into acrylics, markers and digital art. Although Digital painting has become my main tool of expression, I still paint a lot and you’ll likely see some other inspiring creations in here.
After my second child was born in october 2020, from when she was a newborn, I realized that time was passing too fast. I wanted a keepsake to remember how small she was. So I started to draw..
I had a beautiful photo of my daughter Siri that I really wanted to draw. This photograph was from when she was newborn. The drawing became my first unique birth poster.
The very next day I painted a second picture of my son Vilgot at around the same age.
I shared both of the posters at my instagram account @tildasbirthposters and got a lot of requests from other people who wanted the same kind of drawings of their kids
I realized that a lot of parents wanted a keepsake to remember this first years with their children.
So now I draw birth posters on comission in my spare time. If this is something you would be interested in you can order at my webbshop.

All the best ♥
