The Painting Scientist


Art from the Ocean

Welcome to my art page.  Do you like ocean inspired art? Here you will find majestic views above and below the surface. Exciting creatures both naughty and nice yet all with an intrinsic beauty.

I am a scientist, marinebiologist and professional diver since 30 years back. I worked worldwide but mostly in Sweden and the Baltic Sea. Now i transfer the pictures in my head onto canvas and i hope you would like to come along and enjoy my art.

My artistry is about real and imaginary creatures and people in the marine environment. I work in several techniques, acrylic on canvas, metalleaf and alcohol ink to mention some. 

Visit my blogpage where i share thoughts behind my art and also some tips for other artists.

Moonlight serenade

Here in Nordic countries the ligth is very important in our lives. After midsummer soltice it starts getting darker ever evening. It is still warm so you can sit outside and enjoy the moon. It is still, so still, the sea is calm.
