Hey, welcome to my digital home!
My name is Fox Larsson.
I’m an artist, sculptor, creator and illustrator living and working in St. Petersburg Russia. I love wire, wood, lines, dots, shapes, volumes and color.
I juggle making art with teaching English, simultaneous interpreting, teaching wire sculpture and working a full time job in printing, so there’s quite a lot going on in my life. Finding a balance between all those things that I love is something I’m really working on at the moment.
It might sound like a weird combo, but I genuinely love teaching and simul interpreting, and my full time job gives me the freedom to pay for whatever art classes or art supplies I need at the moment. It also helps greatly with my rapid cycling bipolar: it makes things more stable, gives me a simple reason to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day, and even have lunch at regular hours.
When I’m not at work, I’m either making a wire sculpture thing in the studio, drawing at home, or enjoying fresh air in the park with my dogster.
Why would I blog about it?
I’ve always wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember. But I always felt that artists were special people who are born that way, and that I do not have the right to be one.
It was seeing other artists’ lives on the Internet that taught me otherwise: blogs and stories where artists shared not only the great big results of their work, but the ever so bigger process and story behind it.
That’s what I find the most fascinating: processes, backstories, work in progress, small everyday things This is a gift that I found on the Internet, and a gift that I want to pay forward.
What is this place?
Here I have made a digital home for my work.
Part of this place holds a portfolio of my sculpture and illustration and other art. But the other part, and this is the one I treasure most, is my blog where I share the day to day joys and struggles of my creative work.
This is where I share my process, my thoughts and my ways to keep doing the things I love and find meaningful.
I hope you have a good time here, reading stuff and/or looking at pictures. Please share your thoughts and feelings, they’re always welcome. And if you ever have questions or comments or ideas for art work or blog posts we could do together, do comment below or just mail me directly.
All the best,
