About Ingrid Christensen

SpacerIngrid Christensen is, first and foremost, a painter of light.  Her work is an ongoing exploration of light's ability to elevate even the most mundane object into the glowing subject of a painting.

Ingrid is in demand as a workshop instructor both online and in person.  She strives to inspire her students with the wonder of the craft of painting, making them look beyond the surface of their art to its rich, inner depth - to the potential for painting to act as communication and self discovery.  

Most recently, Ingrid wrote and was featured in several Winsor & Newton Masterclass videos filmed in London, UK.  Her art has won both national and international awards and has been highlighted in International Artist, Avenues, and Arabella magazines.  Ingrid is a regular contributor to Artsy Magazine.  Her articles focus on the specifics of painting, from choosing the right brush to making the most of a workshop.  She is most proud of this studio health and safety article for painters, and hopes that every painter, from hobby to pro, will read it and enjoy a long, healthy life.
