Artist biography: Ingela Johansson, mixed media artist

Painting has been my language of expression since childhood. The art I create reflects the places that I have lived in, the contrasts of a global hot pot, and how to come back home. My art has so far brought me to Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Bali, China, England, Norway, Hong Kong, and France.
