Take Five with Lene Bladbjerg

Lene Bladbjerg is a Danish graphic artist based in London, via time spent in Brussels and The Philippines.  This multinational environment prompted Lene's passion for exploring new countries and cultures, which has influenced her work as an artist.  She now works from her studio in Crystal Palace, South London, as a full-time visual artist and freelance graphic designer.

Lene's work is influenced by her background as a graphic designer. It is crisp, thought-provoking and often humorous and she often creates her work by incorporating unusual materials, often re-cycled.  I am particularly fond of her beautiful butterflies created out of Stanley knife blades.  

You can find some of Lene's work on the A L'etage 2 online gallery, a wonderful one shop where you can find the most beautiful gifts for Christmas!

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do?  
I love my job and feel very privileged that I’m doing something I love as my job. I love seeing people’s reaction to my work when I do shows. Especially, if I can make people smile!   

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why?  
I am inspired by lots of people, but my sister Tine Bladbjerg is definitely a creative hero. She’s a  fantastic designer jeweller and we share a workshop in south east London. We don’t work together but give each other feed back, which is great.  She is the reason I came to the UK to study as she was already here.  As well as running her own business, she has just set up our online gallery shop A l’Etage 2, where we sell amazing pieces by talented designer makers.    

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career?  
Not to get too emotional about people’s negative feedback.    

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it?  
I have been very lucky and don’t feel I have ever hit a serious creative block. Of course there are days, where I don’t feel very inspired. On those days I do other things -like admin.  I always keep a sketchbook and write things and ideas down all the time without thinking too much about it. Then I look through these on my ‘off days’.   

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and why?  
I think I would have to say a flip flop... like my designs they are simple with an element of fun!
