Born in Norway, Nils emigrated to South Africa in 1911 and trained at the Durban School of Art. He taught art and ceramics at the Durban School of Art and was responsible for much of the artwork in the Addington Children’s Hospital, the artwork friezes in each ward. Sadly, this work was painted over in the 1960’s. Note: His work can still be seen in the Norwegian Hall on The Berea.
