Birgit Manberger

Medium: Painting

I have my roots in northern Sweden, 125 km from the Arctic Circle, and moved to Albufeira in 2016.

I am self-taught. It was a coincidence that I started painting. I am scientifically educated and painting was not my subject while growing up.

I bought watercolor paints for my husband as he is good at drawing. When they did not come into use, I started painting myself. I moved on to oil pretty soon and lately I also paint with acrylic.

I see my painting as a controlled coincidence. I work partly with landscape motifs and interior images, where the light, colors and contrasts are important elements. Partly also interiors and light reflections.
