Skadi came from Germany to live in England in 1991 and currently lives in Berkshire. Having always had a keen interest in miniatures, she became aware of the Hilliard Society when she attended a miniature painting exhibition in Bath in 1997. There she discovered that artists were still active in this form of painting, received information and advice on contemporary methods used, and decided to try painting miniatures herself. This was a real challenge as she had never held a paintbrush in her hand before.
Skadi first decided to concentrate on portraits, but has since broadened her interests by adding subjects such as landscapes and animals. Skadi paints in watercolor on ivorine and is available for commissions.
In 2009 Skadi was interviewed for the March/April edition of Antiques Diary
