Sverre paints in a playful but also passionate light using vibrant colours and bold lines. Her paintings are a lively and joyful portrayal of what she sees and feels around her, be it from outings on her sailboat or observations along the shore.
Sverre has a degree in Fine Art and has studied with many artists over the years. She sees most of her development as the product of consistent hard work. She has been profoundly influenced by her experiences living in other cultures, whose symbols and icons frequently make their way into her art.
With a broad palette, Sverre notes that acrylic, oil, wax, and inks are always at her fingertips, and her diverse tools range from paintbrushes to scrapers, squeegees, feathers and chopsticks. Working in multi layers with vigorous marks she draws from her experiences and intutition to guide her artwork to completion.
Sverre works from her studio and gallery overlooking Gibson's harbour on Canada’s west coast.
Her works are collected in Canada, Europe, Asia and the USA.
