Eva is an award-winning watercolor artist born in Denmark. She moved to California in 1988 where she lived on the Monterey Peninsula for 20 years before relocating to Truckee, California in the High Sierras in 2010.
Originally Eva started painting with watercolors because she wanted to paint little sketches as part of her travel journals. Since then Eva says she has completely fallen in love with this fluid and expressive medium – it’s always challenging, and she is constantly learning new methods of expressing different moods and motifs, using bold colors and unique compositions.
Over the last 10 years Eva has dedicated her time to expanding her artistic talent by exploring and learning from many teachers and mentors, such as the renowned Tony Couch, Nita Engle, Robert Burridge and Birgit O’Connor, just to mention a few. Since 2009 Eva has participated in many juried art exhibits and festivals in California and beyond. She has won a several awards for her luminous and expressive watercolors. At present she is represented by Europa Design in Monterey, CA, North Tahoe Arts, Tahoe City, CA and Wildflower Gallery, Reno, NV.
In 2009/2010 she spent 5 months as an artist in residence at Mendocino Art Center and that really started her career as an art instructor. Eva has teaching experience from her “earlier life” in Denmark, where she taught at vocational colleges, as well as the Police Academy of Denmark, for well over 10 years. She loves teaching and strives to create an environment where students feel free to experiment and explore their creativity to create luminous paintings.
Currently Eva is teaching art workshops at Nevada Fine Arts, Reno, NV, Truckee Meadows Community College, Reno, NV, T Pots Pottery, Truckee, as well as conducting private and corporate workshops for clients such as Ritz Carlton at Northstar, CA and Camp Lahontan, Truckee, CA.
