Liv Witherow

Liv was born and raised in Norway where she met her American husband who was in the Navy and stationed at the NATO base in Norway.  Liv moved to the US when her husband had orders back to the US. In Norway, Liv painted in the decorative style of Rosemaling, using oil paint on wood (old style of Norwegian decorative painting).

She was interested in art at an early age.  Moving with her family several times due to husband’s military orders, art got placed in the background for several years, but she started up again when moving to Florida 26 years ago.  Liv worked as a Draftsman first and then as Technical Illustrator and Technical writer for companies like Lockheed Martin and General Electrics.  About 10 years ago she discovered watercolors and was hooked.

Liv has been an instructor at Artists’ Workshop Inc. for several years and has won several awards in our juried shows. She has attended workshops with several well-known watercolorists including Janet Rogers, Steve Rogers, John Salminen, Judy Betts, Sue Archer, Birgitte O’Connor and others.  Her artwork can also be seen at The Hub on Canal, and at our Gallery on Canal Street.
