About me and my Art

Charlotta Hörman

My name is Charlotta Hörman and I live in beautiful Smygehamn (as far south as possible in Sweden) together with my partner Stefan Mårtensson. I have two sons, Tim and Ted. I got my first grandchild in november 2014. She is a sweet little girl named Ghia and lives in Peru with my daughter-in-law and son. I paint in oil and have done so since I was 14 years old when I went on a painting course. Painting pictures became a passion that has been in my life since then. 
 

Inspiration

The great Renaissance masters Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Rafael and others have often influenced me in the choice of subject and style. With my peacock paintings I want to get the feeling to be moved back to the Middle Ages environment. Where silence, warmth, scents and stillness gives you peace and the feeling of being one with life and might wish you were there, in the painting. Some other subjects that I paint are worn old teddy bears, chickens, country life, and Madonnas.
