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 now 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.
