Marie Andersson


About me

Marie Andersson is a self-taught international, full time, watercolor artist from Östersund in the north of Sweden and she´s been sketching and painting her whole life. Marie has attended exhibitions in Sweden and internationally since 1998.

It is the love for the watercolor that makes it here main medium for over 30 years. “I still learn new ways to paint, every day. It’s such a joy to be on this journey, exploring watercolours!” Marie is selling original paintings, Fine Art Prints, doing commissions and holding workshops. “I love holding workshops and it’s a privilege to see the light in the eyes of the participants when they understand that “nothing is impossible, and nothing is wrong” when it comes to painting watercolour. It is the end result that matters.”

Born, raised and still living in Östersund, in the north of Sweden, she spent a lot of time in the Swedish mountains and by the lake of Storsjön. It is a natural source of inspiration in many of her wonderful paintings. Painting the snowy mountains is one of her specialities. The way she is capturing the special Nordic winter light is amazing. Marie says: When painting a big painting like this it feels like I’m inside the painting and I’m at the sight. It’s like doing a time travel! Marie paint everything that inspires her, plain air, and in the studio from photos and from memories, often in themes. Among the paintings you can find the snowy mountains, city life, landscape, still-life, portraits. Marie also does abstracts; -I need to paint my inner landscape, the inner “space” and mysterious shapes.” You cannot put Marie in a box! She says that the four things that is important to her is: the light, the light, the shadows and values.
