About the artist
Karin Lykke Groth (born 1967), is a Fine Art painter with modern watercolour technique as her preferred medium.
Many of Karin’s watercolours are 1m x 1.5m and larger, which is untraditional, challenging and demanding!
Her solo exhibitions most often consist of 30-50 works of a theme in a combination of larger works accompanied by smaller studies.
Karin has a preference for north Atlantic motifs and many of her study tours and working trips have been, and still are, in Scandinavia; latterly to Lofoten and Alta in northern Norway; Iceland and the Faroe Islands. These study tours have inspired most of Karin’s richly contrasted landscape paintings.
Croquis is another source of inspiration. Selected croquis drawings are further developed to form the basis for larger pictures, for example the latest series “Tribute”, exhibited at Gamla Kraftstationen in Värmland, Sweden.
Karin’s background is from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen 1986-1994, followed by training in modern watercolour techniques by Arne Isacsson, Lars Holm, Anders Wallin, Morten Paulsen and Hasse Karlsson at the Gerlesborg Art School in Sweden.
Since 2011 Karin has taught modern watercolour techniques and, in her capacity as course leader, arranges weekend and week-long courses in Denmark and northern Norway. Karin also teaches watercolour to American exchange students at DIS in Copenhagen.
Karin has participated in a number of juried exhibitions. She had her professional debut at The Juried Artists’ Summer Exhibition KS20 in 2020 and is a member in The Danish Women´s Artist association, KKS.
