Toril Bækmark grew up in a suburb to Copenhagen, and never wanted to go back when she first escaped. She studied at The Danish School of Art and Design and the most fantastic time from that period was an exchange to Warsaw Art Academy. The Polish professors and their approach to design and illustration, made her world turn upside down and pushed her in to following her heart. For many years she has been fascinated by the aesthetic seen in fashion integrated by the botanic that surrounds her. She loves working with black ink lines and water colour, making it simple and alive.
