The Independent Artist


Dear Potential Collector,

My name is Richard Vännström or Vannstrom to those of you not blessed with 28 letters in your alphabet like us Swedes. This is my store. I'm a painter of all kinds of things and a generally OK person even if I do say so myself.  I have been painting semi-professionally for 15 years now and I enjoy it more with every passing year. There are few things I like more than painting or talking about painting. I guess that makes me a very dull person. Watching paint dry for fun... literally.

I do however think my paintings are far more interesting than me. If you agree, please consider owning one. I have tried my best to make it as easy as it can possibly be to purchase one. I ship worldwide with no hidden fees and I will answer any and all questions you may have as quickly as possible. I now accept easy secure payment with credit card. All works are originals painted in oil by me unless otherwise stated. 

I created this space to reach a wider audience than I could ever hope to do in real life. From now on you will find most of my paintings here, offered at reasonable prices straight to collectors all over the world.

I also accept commissions, private or commercial. 

If you have questions, suggestions or just want to say hello please write me at or visit my website for more information.

Please do not send any returns without contacting me by email first.
