Esra Røise has always loved the preciseness of the pencil and the unpredictability and possibilities of watercolor and ink. She enjoys the juxtaposition of the analogue and digital combined, although she always tries to maintain an analog starting point. Most of her works are a combination of the two. Darya Antonovna Papko – Dazed&Confused "Often uneven and jauntily framed, Røise’s illustrations recall spur-of-the-moment photographs. Distinguished by their elegance, playfulness and romanticism, the drawings capture the spirit of what it is like to be young, free and living in the moment"
