You wanted me to go to MeJ and post sth, so I'm going to a thread with no replies for 8 years, yesss!
The reason for this is that I saw a nice elf picture by someone I guessed was a Swede, name Per Sjögren, posted elsewhere on this forum, wanted to know which elf it was supposed to look like, so I tried to find it on Rolozo, which I did, it was Glorfindel. Then I remembered that Inger Edelfeldt, an old favourite of mine, was in the Rolozo gallery as well, so I checked out those pics, I think they're mostly from that Tolkien calendar 1985, that I sadly don't have. I especially love the Stone of Erech with the grey shadows following Aragorn, no stupid, slimy, green zombies. It's possible that some of these illustrations are in my Tolkien books at home, because, as it happens, Inger Edelfeldt is one of the reasons I fell, hard, for Lord of the Rings in 1985. The Swedish edition, three volumes, I got in 1984, Dad bought it at the annual book sale, has dust covers with illustrations by I.E. In 1988 I got the next three volumes in that series, another book sale find: Silmarillion, Ringens värld (LOTR appendices plus more) and Sagor från Midgård (Unfinished Tales), with more I.E. book covers. There are also some illustrations within the books, but can't remember which ones. I think I.E.'s illustrations sometimes are too fairytale-like with 19th century medieval look à la Howard Pyle, but the colours are great, often subdued, not to bright and scary, so very much in line with Swedish tradition, like for example John Bauer and Elsa Beskow (not Tolkien, classic early 20th century fairytales). I too find her illustrations very evocative, like that she has some unusual motives with lots of lovely details.
A couple of years ago Inger Edelfeldt was a guest at the FFF in Lund, had a small exhibition of Tolkien illustrations and more, loved it. She looked very young, like in her thirties and more or less like a goth girl.
She didn't dress like middle-aged ladies in the culture business do, often colourful and excentric you know, she was definitely into black. I got to talk with her a little bit, got her autograph in my Swedish FOTR, the book that really got me in love with Tolkien and Strider. I can't remember much from our conversation but I did tell her that I loved that picture that shows The Paths of the Dead correctly, it must be the one in the Rolozo gallery called The Stone of Erech, what a portrait of Aragorn.
Sadly I got the impression that Tolkien was very much in the past for her, that she had moved on to her own much darker material and very different things, so I don't think she'll ever make more Tolkien illustrations.
I googled "Sagan om ringen Inger Edelfeldt" and got an interesting result, a site that sells her originals, also some signed prints, prices in SEK, ranging from 500 SEK for signed prints to between 1500 and 25 000 SEK for originals. You could for example get the original gouache of Death of Boromir for 25 000 SEK ($4000 or €2800) or a King Théoden not used for the calendar for 2000 SEK ($310 or €225). Not bad for fans of Inger Edelfeldt.
Some info is just in Swedish so explanations are in order
Button "köp" means buy
Button "gå till varukorgen" means go to basket
Description "ej använt motiv till Tolkien-kalendern" means "not used motif for the Tolkien calendar"
"akvarell/tusch" means watercolour/ink
"omslag" or "bokomslag" means cover/book cover
"skiss" means sketch
"Sagan om konungens återkomst" is the Swedish title of the book "The Return of the King". There are three different ROTK illustrations, originals they're selling, one discarded with Frodo, Sam and eagles at Mount Doom, one with a rider on a white horse used for the book I have, one with Gandalf held by eagle for the pocket version.

I would especially like you to look at Riddles in the Dark, I like that one, great tension between Bilbo and Gollum.
ETA: I found Inger's blog linked from her Swedish wikipedia page, it hasn't been updated for more than two years, but if you want to read her thoughts (in Swedish but there are online translators), she's smart, funny and sometimes political, but you need to see her photos, some are lovely, she seems to like nature and wild, sometimes winter dead gardens, also great, unusual pictures of Stockholm. I think she sees similar things to what I appreciate to look at, both in cities and in nature, she not only has a great eye, but can take photos as well.
And she hasn't forgotten Tolkien completely, in one post she contemplates getting tattoed, possibly Gollum.
