Minor events of daily life are often the source of inspiration for the Norwegian full time artist, Solveig Marguerite Skogseide, to capture emotions and feelings on the canvas. Hence, human relationships are often a theme that she investigates in her work. Her recent work often concerns nature and landscape.
She grew up in a very creative family, where music was of great importance. The result is that she often thinks of creating a painting in the same way as composing music. The atrist uses strucutres, several layers of paint and often stencils which she creates from her own photograps or drawings. Spray paint is always present in her recent work. She experiments with different techniques, which together becomes her personal expression.
She constantly works with harmony and contrast to find the right balance in the painting - this is the source of the sence of calm that so many viewers find in her work. Solveig M. Skogseide exhibits her work regulary on a nation and worldwide basis.
She is represented by several professional galleries and has a large audience.
