Stille Skygger born in 1987 in İstanbul, Turkey. She started painting when she was 8 years old. Since her childhood, the books she read about fantasy and mythology have been a great inspiration to her. When her teacher saw the interest and potential in her, she started to give her drawing lessons. For her works she mostly uses ink, watercolor, oil color, acrylic and pastel color.

Her works are based on Dark Art and Surrealism. She loves to associate beauty with "dark" objects because she believes that the universe does the same. According to her, bad things contain a part of goodness in them and in the same way all the good things have a dark side. This point of view inspires her to create paintings housing fantastic creatures, mystic characters and witches alike.
