Solveig has always been an artist. From a young age she sat and watched, observing life and people and herself in the world. She was fascinated with the way one represents life to oneself in images and words. Both visual and auditory art fascinated her as a child, and she indulged in lots of games, creative play, experimentation, writing and drawing.
As Solveig grew this developed and expanded. After finishing high school, she went to the National Art School in Sydney with a scholarship for a Painting and Sculpture Diploma. It was the total artist’s experience, deep in a bohemian burlesque and cabaret life engaging in colourful creative expression of every kind. At the peak of the psychedelic era with lecturers like Martin Sharpe, John Olsen, Ken Reinhardt, the elite artists of those times.
After college Solveig became a mother of three, stealing creative moments in between childrearing. She also became a psychologist and hypnotherapist, establishing herself in the beautiful community of Mullumbimby. Since 2000 she has been able to commit to her artwork on a more full time basis, practicing and developing her craft, creating works that fill her gallery.
“It is a joyful life I live being able to mirror my times and environment in a way I find inspiring and highly pleasurable.”
