Ann Mari Sjögren

A legend in the Fantasy art world.


Copyright © 2002 Ann Mari Sjögren

With special thanks to Per Arne Skansen for the information, pictures and contact with Ann Mari.

Ann Mari Sjögren was born in 1918 and grew up in Nyhamnsläge, a small fishermen's community in Sweden. Her father was a saddler, but also worked as upholsterer and apart from that, he owned the only taxi-cab in the village.

Ann Mari is the younger of two sisters. One can trace a certain artistic heritage; her mother was very conscious of colours, and her father, in his older days, was carving figures in wood. Ann Mari has been drawing as long as she can remember. Every piece of paper that she found became a little work of art, the margins in her mothers cookery-books were fully drawn with fancy ladies in elegant hats and so on.

"The future? Ha, there is none! It's behind me", says Ann Mari with a deprecating wave of the arm. "But nevertheless, I am happy as long as I can do the things I love to do. That is what makes the day worth living, and that is what enriches my life."

In 2003 Fairies World® visited Ann Mari in Sweden.
