About The Artist

Ingrid Skoglund is a mix of German and Swedish, although born in Ash in Surrey where she still lives and paints.

She has had a lifelong passion for watercolour although her main focus for over 20 years was as Managing Director of a demanding business. Selling out a few years ago, allowed her finally to take up painting full time.

Ingrid is pretty much self-taught, so doesn't have too many rules and loves trying to push watercolour to its limits - in particular to mix it with dye and foil to give a chaotic vibrancy . She also like to mix botanical accuracy with the abstract . She is currently building her portfolio of galleries and exhibitions and is amazed by the interest in her work.

Ingrid's website includes galleries of her paintings of views, animals, flowers, portraits and figures, acrylics and abstracts.

"I work unconventionally with various media to produce unexpected and unpredictable effects. I rarely use a brush and am currently working with the toxic fumes of alcohol ink and isopropyl although the beautiful translucent effects are worth it. A photo of the work just can’t capture it so if you like the image – the real thing is even better – just beautiful. I also often work with acrylic and silicone oil – pushing the mix around with a hot hairdryer and finishing off with a blow torch.

I don’t do cards or prints and I can’t replicate a piece of work . If you buy one of my pieces it’s not just original it’s totally unique. "
