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.
It was very enjoyable to interact with the visitors.
Besides portraits in all subjects, I paint - clothing, pottery, murals - indoors and out -CD covers - graphic art - advertising layout art 9I did that professionally for a while ) - (shown on www.sigridtune.com).
Although I am self taught, (while holding down jobs to pay the rent - 8-). my father was also an artist with a Masters Degree in art from University of Oslo, Norway.In addition one sister is an artist, so we are a creative family.
My studio now, is in a country setting - quiet and relaxing - yet close enough to the nearest Starbucks and other cafes.
Right now, today...I paint stories. I think of a story scene, and paint it, creating the characters.One is for children - the other for me.
My current work includes Children's Storybook series. The main character is Chloe the Flying Lamb...(Copyright protected by U.S. & International Copyright Laws) and all the stories take place in 'Harmony Village'- filled with the little lambs who come alive in my imagination. I hope and intend to bring them into animation.
Geared for young readers learning how to read, I paint the story, then think of the dialog. I have a drawing pad full of pencil drawings ready to complete into paintings. My other work also keep me busy.

My other current artwork is in Ancient Egypt. Around 3000 BC. - mythology from that period has stirred some ideas to bring to life on canvas. The gods, like Odin and Osiris are interesting. The Longships of the Vikings sail to Egypt to trade and explore...on my canvasses. I paint stories.
In my personal life, I like things simple, direct and honest. Growing up in Norway, I had very good strong hard working parents. That always helps. Just thinking of them gives me strength.
