Kerstin Pettersson


My name is Kerstin Agneta Pettersson and I am an artist. I have been this for a rather long time since I made my decision quite early. I also write; tales, poems and facts. I teach art at courses. I live in a tiny Swedish village named Laxne. Since I spent much of my time in other countries and with other languages I speak German, English, Hungarian, Spanish and a little bit of French, besides speaking Swedish, of course. Below is my signature as an artist. You will find it on all my paintings.

PRISER?  PRICES? LET US TALK ABOUT THEM. THEY ARE NOT SPELLED OUT ON THE WEB SITE BECAUSE THEY MIGHT DIFFER FROM TIME TO TIME. A A3 print will be around 300 SEK, the very smallest painting maybe 400 SEK. The really big ones around 50000 SEK. All the others are somewhere in between. The best thing is to ask, if you are interested.

It is finally time for putting thoughts into action and make new paintings.

The year 2016 was in fact strange, both for the world and for me. We were building a lot at home and I was writing a lot (again) as a journalist. Now the new little house is finished and I can paint on canvas instead of walls.

Even my blog has been lacking my attention but things will approve!

And by the way, how can anyone like a president like Trump?

To the right: first new finished painting this year.

Laxne right now, my one village in the world. The places for you can be many, but roots have to grow somewhere.

“Ondskan är inte särskilt sofistikerad, säger man, den är lättare än man tror att förklara. Det man inte själv förmår skapa river man ned, krossar, trampar på. Man blundar för nederlaget genom att utplåna åskådarna.” (Ur “Och hästen sökte sina vingar”.)

Dogs have no mobiles, no computers and do not fancy expensive clothes… Give them dirty holes to dig into and places to run and most of them are happy. This is Saimo (Jarmo), our new and second dog.

Last summer I made three pastels of calves. I plan to make a whole series. You can see them under “More paintings”.

Varför ska vi ha Konst och konstnärer? Är de verkligen nödvändiga, dessa bevärliga typer som vägrar inordna sig i systemet? Nå, ska vi helt enkelt avskaffa dem? Läs vad som händer under “Texts & more”!

Och tänk om de ritar fel saker! Så att de kränker någon… någon av alla dessa väldigt lättkränkta personer som har patent på sanningen.

Tänk så livsfarliga de är, alla dessa tecknare, som man inte har kontroll över.

Ja, tänk.
