This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Valfred Thelin 1934 -1989

He was born in Waterbury, Connecticut and was trained in the European apprentice tradition by his Grandfather, a muralist who came to the United States from Sweden in the late 1800s. His father Carl Valfred Thelin, a commercial artist strongly influenced his work as well. He went on to study at the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Wisconsin, and the Art Students League of New York.  He participated in seminars in Europe, worked on a one-to-one with Hans Hoffman, and Georgia O Keffe.  He was Artist in Residence at the University of Wisconsin, and a signature member of The American Watercolor Society.

Thelin has received many national and international awards for his work, and has been featured in many national and international publications.  His work has been displayed in many museums, private collections, and galleries here and abroad.

Thelin was a sculptor and painter of acrylic and watercolor.  He enjoyed sharing his interest with others and taught classes at museums, universities and organizations.  He considered himself an abstract realist, as he liked to begin a painting in an abstract manner, when he discovered references in his subconscious, he slowly developed the painting in a realistic manor.

He co-authored the book Watercolor: Let the Medium Do It  (1988 Watson -Guptill, NY) with Florida artist Pat Burlin, her husband Jack Burlin did the photography
