Karolina Larusdottir was born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1944. Larusdottir lived and worked in the British Isles from the mid sixties for nearly fifty years. Today Karolina now lives back in her homeland of Iceland. Larusdottir's unique vision of both her homeland and England have won her a deservedly high reputation in the fields of contemporary British painting and also as a highly skilled printmaker working in the medium of etching and aquatint.
Larusdotir successes include many solo and mixed art shows in the most prestigious exhibitions of modern art in Britain, Europe, Africa and USA. In 1993 and again in 1997 the Royal Academy used her paintings to advertise the Summer exhibition. Larudottir's' paintings appear in many private and corporate art collections, including The Vatican, Rome and HRH Queen Elizabeth.
