At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked Sabine Fasching to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.

What inspired you to create these artworks for The Ode To?
– The joy and love for everyday objects and the people in my life.
What other artists do you admire?
– I admire the artist Ida Björs in particular. She is an Illustrator and painter and I find her work to be both genuine and undisguised. I also admire Stina Persson, Daniel Freaker, Hannah Pontin just to name a few.
Could you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?
