Karin Lykke Groth (born in Denmark 1967), is a visual artist with modern watercolour techniques as her preferred medium. She also works with litho prints, monotype prints and decoration of ceramics.

She holds a master’s degree from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.

Karin teaches watercolour as an external lecturer at DIS study abroad in Copenhagen, and she is leading courses in modern watercolour techniques in Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Karin is a member of The Danish Women’s Artist Association, KKS. She has received prestigious grants for her work, is represented in several international art galleries and has participated in a number of juried exhibitions.

At NES Karin’s work is primarily inspired by the fragile and vulnerable nature of Iceland. The melting glaciers – due to global heating and climate change – and the effects pollution and human activities have on the birdlife, the marine environment and the wild flora in the northern part of the country. Her project is based on topic research – and research in the surrounding area of Skagaströnd, sketching in situ combined with artworks using watercolour, liquid ink, mono- and cyanotype techniques intuitively in the NES studio.

Karin’s work and research at NES are to be published as an art book, and the artworks are to be presented at upcoming exhibitions in the Nordic countries.
