Once There Was a Prison

Gun Legler writes, "I live in Sweden in a little village near Gothenburg. When I was 40 I left my job as a child psychologist and teacher, and went to art school where I learned graphic art (etchings and such) for four years. Besides that I have worked much with textile collages and watercolor collages. After buying my first computer ten years ago, I more and more concentrated on digital art. Now the computer takes all my time . I have no education in computer art. I am self-taught. I work in PaintShopPro and sometimes Photoshop. I work mostly from photos, my own and others. Textures are very important for me. I think my love for working with textiles has given birth to that love. With my images I try to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. I try to portray feelings and states of mind in an aesthetic but not always pleasing way."
