About Lene

Inspiration


Animals and nature have a strong positive influence on me - and inspire me to draw and paint. I am fascinated by the diversity of life, amazing colors, patterns, textures and wonderful creatures found in nature.


I live happily with easy access to both forest and meadow areas. In addition to my local nature, I like to go for walks around central Jutland, where nature turns into heathland, plantations and pine forests. Nature is where I best recharge.


My drawing and painting universe has had a naturalistic approach for many years. I love to immerse myself in these motifs of primarily animals but also flowers and plants. They are with great richness of detail and realism.

Although I like to draw in realism, in recent years I have had a great desire for a more original expression in my painting style. It is especially in my paintings, and most expressed in my abstract paintings.


When I draw and paint people, it's women's motifs that I like. I paint the original personalities as in the series "Misses" or draw and paint watercolor in the series "Tattoo". Both series are portraits and fantasy. I try to find special personalities.


And then of course there are my dog ​​drawings. I draw and paint many dog ​​breeds and they are for sale as designs on many things in my Doggyshops.


Take a look through my various collections!

I have several styles, but my focus is on animals, nature and women's motifs with a sprinkle of abstract images.


I want my drawings and paintings to convey my enthusiasm and joy on motifs and processes.
