Elin began her career as an illustrator for the largest bohemian music festival in Sweden called Peace & Love. Her personal love for “circus flavoured French whimsy” became the identity of the festival and was seen across Sweden. Moving to Canada Elin created Afterland, a card game, celebrated for its Tim Burtonesque art style and a darker art style took form. Elin left the world of Afterland.
Her work became lighter and more ethereal, draws inspiration from Swedish folklore and are painted directly onto wood panels. Katten Zen is another project where Elin is drawing highly sensitive cats.
Elin works as a video-game producer by day and has painted in her private time for several years. For the past 12 months, she has been delving into a new theme, HSP, or highly sensitive persons. Works exploring that subject will be displayed in the separate studio behind the small home Jonsson shares with her fiance, actor Artine Browne. Elin includes herself among the 15 to 20 per cent of the population that can be described as HSP, a trait identified in a 1991 book by clinical research psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron.
