Gisela Skoglund’s life has taken her through many artistic expressions. Early on her original passion was for oil on canvas. In High School she was awarded a scholarship to Pratt Institute where she pursued advertising art. All her endeavors have brought her to the use of painting in the mediums of watercolor, acrylic and oil as well as the use of pen and ink. Gisela’s inspirations come from the beauty of nature, photography and other sights which appear in everyday life. She has exhibited her work in juried and invitational shows across Long Island. “I find that painting transports me to a place where time is forgotten and I am totally concentrated and involved.”
