Although Eva’s family is full of artistic talent, it took a while before Eva discovered that vein in herself. Born (1952) and raised in Sweden, she moved to Seattle, WA, USA (1967) in her teens. She graduated with honors from the University of Washington with a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and cruised into an international career in the paper industry. Mid life crisis and burnout (1991) led her to deep studies of inner processes, which altogether could constitute a university degree in life energy.
Eva started painting while in Shen Therapy in Seattle (1991). Her therapist/artist encouraged Eva to express emotions without words. Using intense watercolors, Eva poured her pain into haunting images that spoke more than words could ever express. Years later in Sweden (2000), Eva found Vedic Art, a set of 17 principles for the creative process developed by Curt Källman and the Maharishi.
After the initial course of four weekends, Eva and her friends started a peer learning group, continuing to meet one weekend a month. They talked and painted and socialized. They shared techniques and explored ideas and philosophies. After six years, Eva felt a need to move on, in order to grow another notch. She painted at home for a time. Then in the summer of 2008 she went to Öland, an island in the Baltic Sea, where Vedic Artists from all over the world congregate to paint in barns. The large easels and open spaces were perfect for Eva’s approach. She could work on several canvases at once, and best of all she didn’t have to worry about making a mess. Freedom to just let it explode. Her art took off.
She was one of fifteen Swedish artists chosen to go to India with TellusArt for workshops and exhibits with outstanding Asian artist at prestigious museums in four cities, starting with the art capital of Mumbai at the Prince of Wales Museum.
