Icelandic artist Lina Rut was born in 1966, in Isafjordur, a town in the northwest of Iceland. A natural creative and artistic person, she began her career as a make up artist, opening the first independent make up school in Iceland before moving into education to study Fine Art at the Icelandic Academy of Fine Arts. After graduating she continued to focus on her painting skills, only in the recent years, moving into sculptures and 3D works of art. Inspired by her blind son, the mother of four, started her brand, KRILI, so he could touch and feel the shapes and textures of her work. An avid illustrator and adventurer, Lina Rut currently lives in Iceland, creating her sculptures out of her own studio in Reykjanesbær.
