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. "

About The Artist

Sadly, Noël Haring passed away in August 2008. As a memory of his talent, his excellent work (both original paintings and Limited Edition Fine Art Prints), continue to be available for sale. Please contact us via email.

Having graduated in Design from The Royal College of Art in 1957, Noël Haring started his own industrial and graphic design business. He saw a turning point in his artistic career when a friend introduced him to working in watercolour.

Noël Haring exhibited at The Royal Watercolour Society Summer Exhibition from 1992 and all major exhibitions at the Mall Galleries (Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Portrait Artists, Royal Society of Marine Artists) including the most prestigious one: The Singer and Friedlander /Sunday Times Watercolour Competition.

In 1997, HRH The Prince of Wales selected all the paintings Noël submitted for The Discerning Eye Exhibition.
In 2000 Noël Haring was a prize winner at the Singer and Friedlander/ Sunday Times competition, with his picture “Classic Car in Havana”.

"His meticulously observed watercolour of a dilapidated colonial-style building bathed in brilliant sunlight, with a well-preserved old banger parked on a road outside, is a considerable achievement, not least because it gives not a hint of how complicated it was to get it to look natural”.

Dr Frank Whitford, Art Editor of The Sunday Times

In November 2005, a new Prize Exhibition organised by the Lynn Foundation together with the Painter-Stainers Company gave Noël an opportunity to once again show his talent. His picture “Morning in Brighton” was one of the 12 selected watercolours among the 53 works of mix media accepted out of more than 700 pictures submitted.

About The Artist

“I have concentrated on the portrait, as for me, the face is an endlessly interesting subject to paint, and one to which we can all relate.

I work from photographs, as they provide an accurate foundation upon which the painting can develop, whilst still keeping the subtlety of a moment’s expression. Most of my portraits are Acrylic on Canvas or Board but I also use Pastel and Conte on Tinted Paper.

For a further selection of my work and details on prices and ordering, please visit my website.”

Happy Mum with Commission of Milo

‘Thanks for the portrait of our lovely boy Milo! It’s one thing to capture the facial elements of a person accurately, it’s another to portray something of the metaphysical/spirit of the subject. You do both… in spades. Thank you so much for investing so much care and intelligence into every stroke. We love it!’

Artist Biography

“Drawing and painting have been important to me since childhood. My best presents were cartridge pads, tins of crayons and paintboxes. The simple pleasure of making ‘pictures’ was so much more fun than maths homework or Evensong choir practice with all those psalms; but then, what isn’t?

At school I had a wonderful art teacher, Pat Adams, who encouraged me to explore different media and study painters past and present. So a new world opened up and with it, dreams of being an artist. I took a Foundation Course in Art and Design in Epsom and then started a Fine Art Degree in Bristol. I continued to paint during my spare time from work and gradually concentrated on portraiture.

The human face and form crosses all boundaries and is therefore the most familiar and accessible of subjects. I had painted family and friends from life over the years, but once I started working from photos, my confidence grew. To start with this made me uneasy, until I found that painters – Sickert, for example, had used photos as a starting point. From those early efforts I began to get commissions from family, friends and then by word of mouth. I look to the portraits by artists such as Degas, Sargent and Freud to help me with ideas about brushwork, composition and colour.”
