Niklas Amundson was born in 1967 on the Swedish east coast, close to Stockholm, capital of Sweden. At an early age, he moved with his family to a serene and beautiful island named Marstrand on the west coast of Sweden. There he followed in his father’s footsteps and began painting almost as soon as he could keep a brush in his hand. Through the years, Niklas’ association with the sea has continued and has taken him from the deck of the 138’ sailing yacht S/S Gloria to a Marstrand pilot boat and later to the Swedish Coast Guard.
In 2011 Niklas took over the famous light house island Pater Noster, four nautical miles west of Marstrand. There you can visit a gallery and enjoy a stay at a small hotel. He paints continuously, drawing inspiration from his experiences both in the past and the present. In his own words: “I receive a daily dose of inspiration through living next to the windy North-Sea.”
