Anne Hesvik began rosemaling as a 14-year-old, when she started decorating Hardanger fiddles that her father made. Later, she studied interior painting at the famous Sand School in the Ryfylke district of Rogaland County. Anne continues her study of decorative painting by studying old examples in castles, cathedrals, cabins, and museums in Norway and throughout Europe. She is passionate about sharing the inspiration she gains from the old forms, styles, and traditions. And she is equally excited to be involved in the evolution of this tradition by creating pieces that express something of herself.
