Marita Flodin is known as an excellent aquarellist.
The following quote describes how she approaches her designs:
”I love to paint
what Mother Earth
has to offer in nature.”
Carina Flodin paint mostly in acrylic on linen canvas. Her most famous motifs are her different hearts in warm, vibrant and bright colors.
It all started with carpets emblazoned with heart patterns. These have been sold all over Scandinavia since 2003. After this followed designer dishcloths and linen shopping bags, all with her now trademark heart symbols. The latest products are her very successful dining trays for tables or to put on purpose made steel tray stands in different varieties. These have many different motifs, but it wouldn't be a Flodin Design product without a heart!
Her philosophy when painting and designing can be summarized in the following quote:
”My wish is that you will be happy
and get a warm feeling inside
when you look at my paintings.”

The Artwork for Charity challenge
Swedish Radio P4 sent live from Bromölla train station, April 27th 2012 from 06.00 until 10.00 and announced the Artwork for Charity project where local artists were challenged to create artwork from everyday objects to raise money for charity through an auction.
A few weeks before this I got a call from the famous radio profile Anders Liljeqvist. He asked me if I was interested to join this crazy art project and create an artwork using icescrapers.
If you said yes – you would have to create something artistic from a collection of icescrapers! And when you were done your piece of art would be up for auction in the beginning of October. All money raised by this auction would be sent directly to charity.
Obviously I said YES! It was a hard process trying to imagine something
created from icescrapers to be able to raise money for charity, but I created two pieces of art that went on auction!
ICA MAXI Supermarket in Bromölla gave the highest bid which was 4000 SEK and won the auction! They are now showing the art in the supermarket entrance. The two pieces of art that they won is a led lamp and a sculpture of a rockband - ”The Love Scrapers”. A band called TC8 made a special song for the band in a music project. This song is "Open your heart"...
