Created by Swedish-born, Perth-based artist Anneli Shorter, Mitt Stockholm (My Stockholm) was commissioned by Maud Edmiston to mark the opening of Miss Maud cafe at Lakeside Joondalup shopping city.

‘From the time I opened the doors to my very first Miss Maud pastry house in Perth in 1971, my guide was the warm and inviting hospitality of Stockholm that I wanted to share with customers,’ Ms Edmiston said.

She said she was delighted to give Joondalup customers an insight into her homeland.

‘I hope this beautiful mural will add another dimension to the experience of enjoying our traditional hospitality while introducing the community to another city that’s close to my heart, and providing inspiration and enjoyment for them,’ she said.

The mural is a collage of Ms Edmiston’s favourite landmarks in Stockholm. She said she wanted Joondalup customers to feel like they were visiting Stockholm and also learn a bit about Stockholm’s cultural landscape.

She hoped it would encourage people to explore and appreciated landmarks in their own Joondalup community.

Shorter said she was attracted to skilful, thought-provoking and realistic artwork.

‘The beautifying of spaces and connecting of history with the present is what I love,’ she said.

Miss Maud cafe opened in the West Mall of Lakeside Joondalup shopping city on December 13.

– The Weekender and Miss Maud have three $50 vouchers to give away to celebrate the opening of the Joondalup store.
