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 nearly 30 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 like to travel and paint in the UK, Norway and to other parts of the world.

I teach ink and watercolour classes and workshops in the UK and in Norway. I am a watercolour instructor on the Fred Olsen Cruise Line, where I am also Artist in Residence at certain times. 
 

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