Hello, my name is Joana Öberg.
I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the municipality of Nova Iguaçu. I took a plane to the world, because I needed to see what was out there.
My odiseé took a break for: at least 20 years, in Stockholm-Sweden. Here is where I live now with two kids, a husband, some sweet sheep and a couple of nice chicken that gives us delicious eggs on a daily basis – and boy they are colorful too! They are blue, green and brown… How lucky can you be?
My story with art started about 30 years ago, more or less.
I started mostly with acrylics and afterwards I began experimenting with watercolors and gouache. In 2018/2019 I was finally brave enough to paint in oils. I cannot tell which medium I like the most, just that I prefer one over the other on occasions.
The style I enjoy the most to paint nowadays is unpredictable, loose with signs of geometry and it can bring up some figurative happy accidents.
Please be welcome to follow me on my painterly journey.
