Kalundborg , Denmark
Hi! I’m Lea Hartmann, Danish. I spontaneously started painting in oil an acrylic in 2007. I have always loved art, but felt that it was somehow completely out of reach for me to produce art myself. One day I surprisingly found myself in a café, asking if I could exhibit. They agreed. I had not painted a single painting up till then. I started painting regularly for about a year. Then I held a several years break and didn’t start again until 2014. I switched to drawings/illustrations on watercolor paper, in the ‘doodle’ style instead of oil and acrylic.
In 2016 I was made aware of an upstarted gallery, ‘Gallery Dyrehøj’, and I went with a couple of drawings under my arm and asked if they were interesting for the gallery. They were. Since then I have exhibited in galleries, libraries and schools. Mostly in Denmark, but also in Runavík, Faroe Islands. I have made art for mostly private but also commercial use. Some newspaper articles have been written, some to my surprise.
