Sally Lywood

"My art is definitely inspired by Norwegian nature; high mountains and deep fjords, Constantly changing light. As a material, I have been fascinated by transparent/translucent mediums like tissue paper and now tulle which give such a variation of tones and depth as the layers increase."

Nordic Mood 1 - Tulle on canvas 33 x 44 cm

“I am British and live in Norway. I have always drawn and painted from a child but serious artistic activity began with a one year stay on the Cook Islands, South Pacific in 1997/98. When I came back to Norway I continued doing art professionally and have continued ever since. I am part of an artist's cooperative. My work at present is mainly in collage and textile.”
