About



Welcome - I am Line Mortensen a Danish architect, designer and artist based in North Berwick, Scotland.

My educational background is a MSc. in Landscape Architecture with specialisation in Golf Course Architecture and big scale construction. Before becoming a full time artist I successfully ran own golf design business for more than a decade alongside spending a few years as a course coordinator and lecture at Edinburgh College of Art (which is how I ended up living in Scotland).

My Danish heritage, architectural experience and a vivid imagination is the catalyst for my creative endeavour. Adding to this a passion for design, materials and good craftsmanship I am simply an artist.

Although I design and create both jewellery and golf designer items my main artistic outlet is my mosaic work.

My mosaic work is recognisable by being contemporary, imaginative, abstract and detailed with a unique combination of materials, textures and colours. The materials themselves are more often than not the inspiration for my work and the colours reflections of my surroundings. In my work I aim to create something "beautiful" which has visual longevity and will challenge the imagination of the observer.
