My name is Ritha Gaarde Næss. I grew up in Kristiansund, a city on the north-west coast of Norway. Close to the ocean, islands and mountains. With light summer nights and dark winter evenings as a companion.
I now I live in Molde in a area with great fjords and mountains.
I like spending time in the nature and meeting people. My watercolor paintings are inspired by these impressions.
I am graduated as woodcarver and studied drawing and painting with great artist in Norway and abroad.

Here I am painting sunflowers in France in the summer 2019
