Born in Denmark in 1971 Line excelled creatively in her youth but went on to study Landscape Architecture in Copenhagen obtaining an MSc. in 1998. Parallel to this and inspired by her sporting achievements she also gained a diploma in Golf Course Architecture and Design in 1997. The Diploma was certified by the British Institute of Golf Course Architects (BIGCA) of which Line later became the first Dane and woman to join. It was her specialization in Golf Course Architecture which in 2001 brought her to the UK and later to Scotland when she in 2003 was offered a job as Lecture and Course Coordinator of an “International Diploma in Golf Course Design” at Edinburgh Collage of Art.
During her time at Edinburgh Collage of Art Line also set up her own Golf Course Architecture business which she, as one of few females worldwide, successfully ran until January 2016 when she became a professional Artist.
The transition from Golf Course Architect to Artist happen gradually. Following the recession in 2008 the golf industry changed. As a result, Line found her artistic talents increasingly underused and slowly started exploring her creativity beyond Golf Architecture. Becoming a professional artist was however never the plan but happened as Line’s architectural insights and experiences gradually aligned with her artistic talents and developing skills.
Before becoming a full-time artist, Line did however prove her professional artistic potential. Selected by Craft Scotland to show her 3×0.6m large wall piece “Mosaic Tapestry” at the 2015 International SOFA exhibition in Chicago, US she sold the piece to a private buyer – proving that her art had both appeal and potential.
Line’s work is as unique, varied and fascinating as her background but also scares. With a limited output due to the nature of her work Line only displays her pieces a few times annually. The scale of her work has so far varied but is developing in size and future work is therefore likely to remain both rare and scares.
Line currently lives in North Berwick, Scotland.
