I was born in 1966 in Koege, a village in Denmark. I live and work not far from the center of Copenhagen.
Little Lars - 100 x 100 cm
Acrylic on canvas - Sold
I work in acrylic on canvas and as a painter, I am known to put together several canvases in one image and paint all possible "crooked" formats possiple in between. I also paint in watercolour, make collages, drawings, lithographs, illustrations and sculpture (figures in clay). I also write poetry, give talks and teach. My creative urge is strong, and I am inquisitive and creative in many ways.
My career as artist really started when my work was accepted for the Autumn Exhibition KE in Copenhagen in 1995. By then I had been a private pupil of the Danish artist Jeff Ibbo for three years, and I was at the same time studying History of Art at Copenhagen University. I had already shown in several officially accepted exhibitions, and I had three paintings accepted for the Autumn Exhibition in 1996, which was very encouraging, and in both 2000 and 2001 my work was accepted for the Summer Exhibition KS too. In the meantime I had been in Latvia attending the Symposium at a wonderful castle set in the rugged landscape, where my huge work made of homemade, hand-made cotton paper and felt, is still decorating the wall.

"Lotte Kjoellers paintings are almost always inspired by human relationships. Often one or two people are depicted in a situation together. Many take place out-of-doors, many in an enclosed interior. Music, relaxation, and dreams appear in many of the works. In 2008 the artist made a series of paintings with the collective title 'Change', to be understood as transformation and change-ie Man's transformation throughout a lifetime. This is expressed through the motive, and the colours are vivacious and expressive. Occasionally gold and silver are used as a scintillating emphasis of movement in a direct or transfered meaning.
Lotte Kjoeller's sculptures, made between 1995 and 2008, are all, as is the case with the paintings, modelled from life. The material is clay with chamotte. The figures are fired, and some are glazed several times with the artists own recipe. Many of the figures, for example 'Grubleren', in fired clay with 'chamotte' 47x21x17cm, expresses marked and speculative sensuality."
I have experience of teaching drawing and painting in acylic, at evening schools and art schools and as Occupational Therapy. I can offer private individual lessons in my studio in Copenhagen to those who may be interested. Just give me a call or mail - I do speak English!

Would you like to commission a drawing or painting? I draw or paint portraits, personal icons or paintings, illustrations, posters etc., no limits to the possibilities! If you would like to commission a work, you can order it here by mail or phone. When I paint a portrait it may be of just the head, or the full-length figure may be portrayed - clothed, or in the nude. I have painted men, women, children and family groups (and also for example musicians while performing). I usually paint the whole figure and use the surrounding space to express the person's background, personality etc., as I have come to understand it. Therefore it is possible for the model to suggest locality, pose, mood, colour, etc! You can investigate here on my website and see “illustrationer”, “erotica”, “portrait” series etc. which I have made on commission for other people.
I live and work near the center of Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark. My workshop is called Atelier Lk-kunst.dk and can be visited by appointment. I have 'Open House' once in a while, when you would be very welcome to come by and have a look. I welcome galleries, gallery groups, art societies, and individual visitors – My studio is open to everyone - the 50 m2 size can hold quite a crowd! If you would be interested in further information, or would like to visit my studio (where there is of course much more work to be seen, than is shown on this web-side), you can contact me via e-mail by my 'contact side', by telephone. I look forward to hearing from you! Do contact me on the adress below:
