Biography from AV Fine Arts:
Morten Solberg paints in oil, acrylic, and watercolor.  His techniques range from photo-realism to total abstraction, with the combination of both being his most popular style.  His paintings have appeared on the covers of numerous magazines, and he has been featured in American Artist, Wildlife Art News, Art West, Watercolor, Sports Afield, Sporting Classic, Southwest Art, and Orange County IllustratedAmerican Artist magazine editors chose him as their Artist of the Year in 1986.  His accomplishments have earned him listings in Who's Who in American Art and Who's Who in the West.

American Indian history and culture hold a special allure -- perhaps because there are American Indians and Norwegian whalers among his great grandparents.  Wildlife, romantic women with parasols, flowers, fisherman, cowboys, and American Indians have provided him with endless colors and shapes with which to design.

His work has taken top awards in many exhibitions, including the Society of Animal Artists, the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the National Academy of Design.

In 1993, he was elected to U.S. Art Magazine "Artist Hall of Fame." In 2001, he was named "Master Artist" by Wildlife Art Magazine.  His work has been published as limited edition prints since 1977.

To date there are over 95 prints available.  His work is represented in many collections including the Smithsonian Institution, National Gallery of Art, The Dunnegan Museum of Art, American Artist Magazine, National Academy of Design, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art, Wildlife Art News Magazine and many private and public collections.


Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Creating a feeling through shape and color and a lifelong desire to become an artist is the primary combination and motivating factor behind Morton Solberg’s art career. An Impressionist/contemporary and realist/traditional painter, Morton Solberg paints in oil, acrylic, and watercolor.

His techniques are varied, ranging from photo-realism to total abstraction. In fact, he often starts a painting abstractly to invoke certain emotions and blend the two techniques. His works are represented in several private and public collections including the Smithsonian Institution, National Gallery of Art, National Academy of Design, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art, The Dunnegan Museum of Art.

Biography from Nichols Taos Fine Art Gallery:
Morten E. Solberg has spent his lifetime developing his unique style of painting that he is known for, yet is a versatile artist in all mediums.  He paints in oil, acrylic, and watercolor, and his techniques range from Photo-Realism to total Abstraction.

There was never a time that he can remember wanting to be anything other than an artist.  Years of pursuing his craft via design studios and commercial art brought Solberg to the West.  While living in Southern California's Orange County, he firmly established himself in the art world with memberships in the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, the Society of Animal Artists, Wildlife Artists of the World and Knickerbocker Artists.

Solberg shed his commercial ties and concentrated on fine art and has been painting full time since 1971.  Awards and inclusions in prestigious collections followed.  His paintings have been on the covers of numerous magazines, and he has been featured in American Artist, Wildlife Art News, Art West, Watercolor, Sports Afield, Sporting Classic, Southwest Art and Orange County Illustrated.

In 1993, hewas elected to U.S. Art Magazine "Artist Hall of Fame".  In 2001 Wildlife Art Magazine established Mort as a "Master Artist".

Mort's work has been published as limited edition prints since 1978.  To date there are over 102 prints available. 

Wildlife, romantic women with parasols, flowers, fisherman, cowboys, and American Indians have provided him with endless colors and shapes with which to design.  Solberg's work has taken top awards in many of the exhibitions he has entered including the Society of Animal Artists, the American Watercolor Society, and the National Watercolor Society.

His work is represented in many collections including the Smithsonian Institution, National Gallery of Art, National Academy of Design, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art, The Dunnegan Museum of Art, The National World Museum of Environmental Art, American Artist Magazine, Wildlife Art Magazine and many private and public collections.

Mort and his wife, Terri, have three daughters: Brandalyn, Monet and Tauna, who are accomplished students and athletes.  Mort has three adult sons: Mort Jr., who upon leaving the Navy chose to work and reside in North Carolina; Eric, a graduate of Miami of Ohio, is an Art Director for a magazine publisher in Ohio; and Scott, a graduate of UCLA in California, is a Senior Graphic Designer for an International Investment Firm in Tacoma, Washington (Frank Russell).  Tauna is attending Northern Arizona University, majoring in Art.  Monet is a recent graduate of San Diego State University, with a BA in Psychology and is working towards her Masters.
