About the Artist – Elin Muren
"Nature is where I find peace and inspiration. The beautiful colors on the trees on a crisp autumn day, a naked branch, a round stone by the sea, those big mountains on the west coast of Norway, the patina on an old door...”
Both the fjords and mountains in her home country Norway, and the forests and lakes in Finland, Elin's homeland for many years now, are close to her heart and a source of inspiration in all her work.
Fragments from nature are often a returning theme in her art, with a personal twist. Her background as a florist playes a big role – structures, forms, colors and balance are sources of inspiration.
As her main media, Elin uses acrylic and oil colors on canvas, but it can also be mixed media/collage on panel or wood. To get that interesting touch, she plays with modeling paste, wax, fine sand, paper and more.
