Josette Siig Gaardsvig

  I was born in Copenhagen, both my parents artists. I was raised in an untraditional way which initiated my instinctive search for freedom in life.

Apparently this should alter my carreer as I started out with a master degree in economics from the University of Aarhus. The habitus of working in the marketing sector not suiting me, I worked for Lego as a product developer for some years before settling as an artist.

The purpose of art is to move people. And so I try hard to do so, bearing in mind that a painting is like a dance which in some subtle mysterious way triggers your feelings.


In 2007 I began painting landscapes and in 2014 I developed a new line of paintings based on several photos merged into one picture.

This tecnique enables me to paint anything I can imagine, which I find very intriging. Especially my underwater paintings would not have been possible without this method of working.
