WELCOME !! View PORTRAITS and my ART HISTORY at.........WWW.SIGRIDTUNE.COM
Originally from Norway, I have been creating art since childhood...and had an art studio/gallery -open to the public -
downtown (Main St.) Ventura, CA. For 15 years. There I painted commissions ( in all subjects ) and my own art.
Including clothing, pottery, murals and other things. (shown on www.sigridtune.com).
I am self taught. My father also an artist had a Masters Degree in art from University of Oslo, Norway.
I listen to everything going on in this busy world. My favorite is to listen to radio. AM and FM. I do not watch live TV. But DVD's -yes.
Having created visual art for over 30 years, I have developed many techniques. When teaching, I just ask the student:
'what do you want to learn - how do you want it to look?'
Then show them how to do that. I give private lessons. My studio now is in a country setting - quiet and relaxing - yet close enough
to the nearest Starbucks.
Among my latest work is a Children's Storybook series. An idea that came to me after a stay in the hospital and eye surgery.
The main character is Chloe the Flying Lamb...and all the stories are in a place called Harmony Village filled with little lambs.
The characters come alive in my imagination. I may bring them into animation....once I learn how. View Paintings.
Geared for young readers learning how to read. I paint the story-then think of the dialog.
I post on Facebook also. - Sigrid Tune -friend me if you like.
My other current artwork is in the Ancient Egypt arena. Namely around 100 to 300 BC.Studying mythology from that period has stirred some ideas that I am bringing to life on canvas. I do not have children, so I paint almost ALL the time, amusing myself with the wildlife that come my way and watching this world from a distance, thanking God every day for His Creation, wondering what He is up to next.
I like things simple, direct and honest in my personal life. I had very good, strong hard working parents. That always helps. Just thinking of them gives me strength. They lived through the 2nd world war, (in Norway) but I was born right after.
