Ink and Watercolour artwork boston lincolnshire

I am a member of the Lincolnshire Artists Society and the Kirton and Boston art groups.

Moving from Norway to Great Britain 25 years ago, I n
ow live close to the busy market town of Boston. Inspiration for painting is all around me with great buildings, a river running through lined with fishing boats and a bustling food marked every week.

In my art work, I normally use a combination of strong ink drawings with a looser watercolour paint. I am interested in landscape, coastal scenes, and subjects with a history, such as old boats and buildings.  

I also travel to coastal areas to sketch and paint, sometimes with the Urban Sketcher Community, and I love sitting on street corners sketching people and urban life or in a harbour sketching a fishing community.

Whilst I am mainly self taught as an artist, I attended a Graphic Design course in 1978 and I have enjoyed participating in various art courses and workshops over the years.

I like the combination of drawing and painting, especially buildings, urban landscapes, boats and busy street scenes.

Sketching courses and workshops

I teach various painting courses, such as Painting with Watercolours, Ink and Watercolours and Urban Sketching. See events page for current courses. 
Said participants: "The course met more than my expectations, you really taught me things."
"The course gave me the confidence to sit outside and just draw without worrying about people watching."
