Nanne has studied at Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, and spent several years painting in the studio of Odd Nerdrum in Norway. She currently owns and operates her own studio in Sweden.
Nanne paints in oil, in a style inspired by both the Renaissance and the Dutch masters. By painting layer on layer it gives her paintings a rich luminous effect, which has attracted the attention of private collectors around the world as well as notable institutions including the National Portrait Gallery in London, England and Jonkopings Lans Museum in her native Sweden. Great Painting is compressed of several elements, says Nyander. There is a technical aspect which one learns from a teacher or in the Academy, but just as important is the painters ability to "see"... to have the patience to detect the subtle nuances of light that give form to the world. Then there is the painters vision... what one wants to say with the voice one has. The voice of Painting. The vision for Nanne Nyander is an important element.
Nanne paints Angels with a message. She wants to say something with her paintings. Nanne intents for her paintings to make a difference in peoples life, to inspire us, to enhance our life quality.
A painting must be seen to be truly appreciated; to fully grasp the power and beauty of light that can be obtained through the craft of oil painting.
Her paintings are about about finding the light in the darkness. They are about seeing the beauty in the world as Blessings. Courage" is one in the series of Angels of Virtues. This painting is also the first one in the series to be made into Limited Edition Prints. Website: www.nannenyander.se
