Proudly carrying the moniker ‘ambassador of the lights of the North’, Hilde Eilertsen Sletvold has caught the eye of many an art critic. Having put a 21-year-long past as pardiatric nurse behind her to focus on her preferred hobby of watercolour painting, she has not only uncovered her passion – but also made it her livelihood. Today she is particularly known for her interpretations of the lights in Northern Norway where nature always seems very close. Even far beyond Norway’s borders, Hilda has been praised for her use of watercolours.
