Artist

Petra Börner

Petra Börner grew up in the Skåne County of Sweden, but has now been based in London for many years. She explores her work through a wide range of media with her passion for drawing being at the heart of her practice.

Aspiring to be an artist from a young age, with a keen interest in crafts and techniques, Petra started assisting at creative studios straight out of high school. A year later she moved to London to study fashion at Central St Martins whilst working on illustration commissions.

Petra collaborates with clients worldwide on bespoke projects and her signature work features in collaborations with clients including Chanel, The New York Times, Oscars, Boråstapeter, The Royal Opera, Apple, Louis Vuitton, Amnesty International, Kew Gardens, Tiffany & Co, Penguin, The World of Interiors, Victoria & Albert Museum, and Vogue.

Petra's Style

The constant urge to spill out her ideas and thoughts has brought her towards exploring her work repetitiously using a multitude of methods and processes. Surface experimentation and sculptural forms in clay have become an integral part of her practice in recent years. In this making she finds the beat and pace where time stops.

Often creating work as part of wider continuing series or in pairs, Petra is continually drawn towards abstract botanical themes in her art where she explores the power and fragility of our natural world and our place. Currently dividing her time between personal work, creating pieces in preparation for exhibitions and collaborations, this spring sees the launch of her first artist book, Rough Pickings by Petra Börner, which brings together a collection of her signature work.

Petra also works with clients on murals and installations - discover more about Petra's bespoke work.

"As long as I can remember, I've been drawn to the line and drawing and making has been a part of my life. I love the rhythm of marks on the page and it's exciting how a moment becomes ingrained on them. Creating work makes me feel at ease, at home - nothing compares. I love the feeling of losing myself in a parallel space and time - where only creativity can take me." - Petra Börner

The Debut Home Collection

"Cirkular is a collection of objects created using a mixture of media, adapting found objects made of wood and combed with ceramic and textile elements. ‘Since I was a young child I’ve loved flea markets, hunting for treasures and collecting or transforming them into something new and exciting.’ Cirkular grew out of this passion, a longing to play and explore combinations between found objects and a ceramic practice. The wooden structures were found in at a vintage market in Sweden this summer and they are very typical of Scandinavian woodcraft, often overlooked as something perhaps too familiar." - Petra Börner, Cirkular

Drop 4 - High Summer 2021

"Rainbow Blast is a collection of a mixture of bright new work sitting somewhere between rain and shine. The works on paper created for this high summer drop is part of two wider series Abstract Florals and Floral Dream, all painted in inks and acrylic on a range of paper. Here at this point, halfway through the year, sun, standing tall with its promise of good times, colours seem more vivid, warm ray’s soaking up any stray drops encouraging natural beauty to emerge. Happy Summer!" - Petra Börner, Rainbow Blast

Drop 3 - Summer 2021

“This collection is a continuation of my Floral Faces created using a few different techniques, but with a semblance in their vibrant palettes. I realise how dependant on I am by daylight and these extended hours of brightness during the summer is such a natural boost. Coming from the north, I can’t help but to rotate towards the sun like a plant relishing its rays throughout the day.
I’ve been working in clay for many years now and it never gets tired but is always very exciting. I’m drawn to the line in all my work and working in 3D is a natural extension to my practice, exploring both surface and form. The two pieces in the collection were hand built using slabs and carved plaster press moulds.” - Petra Börner, Full Sun (Plein Soleil)

Drop 2 - Spring 2021

"This is a new series blending two themes I’m often drawn to in my work, faces and abstract botanical work, sort of in two parts. I love this combination of techniques and palettes, cut paper collages and fine ink lines, both dynamic and pensive I think." - Petra Börner, New Cuts

Drop 5 - Winter 2020

"This is going to sound corny, but things have been so gloomy and tough for so long now so I wanted to focus on something vibrant and positive. The new collection of work is really a celebration of the people who help me overcome hardship, friends, neighbours and family. 

I was thinking of the people I know and meet who are generous with themselves and make such a difference to us every day. Some people just do that with ease and it's a beautiful thing! So, here's to Chummy and Mon ami with their good vibes helping us keep our heads up!" - Petra Borner, Still Life

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

"This series, Island Flower, is inspired by my brief stay on the Swedish west coast island where I spent my summers as a child. A tranquil, unusual place in nature, surrounded by the forest centered on barren rock tumbling into the salty, cold sea. It's such a contrast to the past months spent in our city flat and my daughter started taking cuttings of plants on our walks. She then pressed them, found out their names in Swedish and English and arranged them into a scrapbook." - Petra Borner, Island Flower Series

Drop 2 - Spring / Summer 2020

"Floralistic is a collection of new work painted with ink and acrylics on paper. It’s a booming celebration of spring, its zesty, fragrant colours and the power of transition. These Floral Faces are immersed in foliage and have become one with the natural world. Energetic, bright blocks of colours are first applied to the paper, followed by the black ink lines. The motifs take shape unplanned and instinctively, a reaction to the palette on the page." - Petra Börner
