I am a Finnish painter (woman) . Permanen resident since 1969 in Spain. I paint 8 hours a day, 365 days a year. I have been painting for 40 years and have had abt 200 exhibitions in 16 countries. My style is personal, different. I use oil on canvas and work for weeks, sometimes months on a picture until it satisfies me. I paint series of the same theme, : when one serie is finished, I start a new one.

Critiques about my work in the Album ;Totte Mannes

Jonathan Blanchard Smith (London) wrote in 2010::
The work of Totte Mannes takes you on a journey through nature and through the world. Exhibited worldwide, Totte's work has never before been available as it is now, here, in this major compilation - which is both a retrospective and a shop window, bringing her work from the studio to the world.
We invite you to view the site of (in Rafael Canogar's words) 'this unique and complex artist'. You'll find a representative collection of her work, as well as our 'rotating collection' which highlights one of Mannes' particular themes or series. We change this every three months.
We are proud to make Totte Mannes's work available for sale. Use the contact button on any page to request further information.
NEW FOR 2010: Totte now has a Flickr page, where you can see even more of her work. See Totte's Flickr pag
