Gitte grew up in Denmark’s seaside Skagen treasured for its dancing sunlight, fierce wind and deep passion for art. Lazy summer childhood days were spent in her grandparents’ garden, down at the harbor or horseback riding on the beach. Today, her home and studio are both nestled in the Rold Forest, sheltered by lovely, crooked old beech trees. Hence, it is the creatures of the sea, the garden and the forest that pulse through her Nordic life and art.
