Welcome to Artmonkey

Ursula Isaksen

I come from a creative family of professional musicians, dancers and singers, although I didn’t start painting until my 2 children had grown up and left home.

I have worked as a radiographer for more than 40 years, the majority at Northampton General Hospital.

I paint in watercolour because it has luminescence and vibrancy.  Watercolours wash and melt across the page and can create unexpected and beautiful results. 

I try to capture a sense of engagement with whatever I am painting, the facial expressions of animals, the delicacy of flowers and the humour in the natural world.

I have exhibited at various art festivals including Alderton, Sywell, Lamport Hall, Boughton House, Castle Ashby and my work is on permanent exhibition at
