About Me

I’m Jón Magnus Joensen, an artist born and raised in the Faroe Islands. Nested in between Shetland and Iceland, the Faroe Islands are home to some of the nicest people I know but also some of the most stunning views I’ve laid eyes on.

The Faroese nature is truly a sight to behold: some call the islands the last paradise on Earth and their beauty has been my muse ever since I grabbed my first pencil and a sketchbook. I have been drawn to painting since I was a child and in 1983 I held my first exhibition. In the years that followed, I kept on painting and drawing, inspired by the beauty unraveling all around me. I held many more exhibitions since and obtained my art education from Holbæk, Denmark.

Today, I spend plenty of my time painting. The focus of my artwork is the Faroese nature, as well as the many quaint villages and larger towns scattered around the islands. I’m particularly inspired by the bright heaven light that is a constant presence on the Faroe Islands, and you can often catch a glimpse of it in my paintings.

 

If you would like to get in touch with me to learn more about my work or the beauty of my home, feel free to contact me on jojoen@gmail.com. Any painting that captures your eye is for sale (you can ask about specific sizes, prices and more).
