For love of art
Thank You for visiting my website! !
My name is Nina Lostedt. I am born in Helsinki and from the year of 1979 in Kirkkonummi living artist.
Since childhood I have been very creative and always loved to draw and paint in strong colors. Painting classes was the best I knew in guidance from my very talented art teacher. My dream was to study art at Ateneum in Helsinki, but life had other plans for me. I met my husband and we builded a family and I landed in the economic business for two decades. My creativity took forms as individual clothes and knittins for my family. Everyday art appeared also in the kitchen and garden. .
Later I studie Physiotherapy and I founded together with my husband our own Physiotherapy company. Again my creativity came to use - I made all our marketing materials, logos and campaigns . During the busy job- and familylife I didn´t have much time to paint.
Now I am retired from my job, sold the company , and I finally got the time to concentrate on art and painting at my hometudio. I have studied painting both by myself and with skilled teatchers. Oilpainting I found during the covid-19 years and 2022 I deciced that I can learn to like even aquarelles ( during the school years I did not like them at all). You can always learn something new as long as you stay curious and open minded and willing to try.
I am a member of Kirkkonummi Artist´s Association, Kity ry, and a member of Finnish Artist´s Association Suomen Taiteilijat ry
I paint with huge emotions and strong colors . People , the beautiful nature surrounding our house and the wild animals inspires me most. And horses, of course. Time flies when painting and I often forget about time and place and just let the paint flow over the canvas. Everyone experiences art in her or his own way and I hope that you can find something intreresting and beutyful in my art.
I paint with oilcolors and aquarelles of good quality, sometimes even with acrylics , ink and carbonchalk
I take comissions too! Feel free to contact me.
Art belongs to everybody !
