Artist Bio

Self Portrait

I was born in Iceland 1962. My father is from Denmark and my mother is Icelandic. I live in Iceland with my husband and two boys. I am compelled to create and it is my passion. The process of filling a canvas with color and form is a deeply satisfying experience. I find myself gazing at a blank canvas and get excited to fill the space with color and texture. What I love most of all, is the process of growing with the artwork itself. My paintings express how I feel in a particular moment. I belive that art can offer therapeutic relief from challenges and stress in our life.You cannot hide in a painting, you reveal all that you are, your hopes and fears, your strengths and weaknesses, your past, present and future. Painting is as love, in that you need audacity to begin and wisdom to determine when it is finished.

I am passionate about enjoying life and traveling. I love to experience different cultures , their food, wine and art and my inspiration comes from traveling, nature and love. Life is what we make it and beauty can be found in most everything and a way of life is to concentrade the mind on the present moment.

This opportunity to show my art here on the internet is the perfect way for me to share my paintings with you and Id like to know how you feel about them.

Thank you, for all your comments, I really appreciate them.

Best regards

Stefanía Jörgensdóttir
