Kari Veastad

About the artist:

My name is Kari Veastad. I was born in 1961 in Haugesund, currently living in Sandnes in the southwest part of Norway. “My daily work has been in the oil industry, with systems and numbers that have been my career way. My interest in people with their different relationships and connections has led me to various therapeutic and coaching educations.

Creativity has always been a part of my life and has given me a lot of energy. I also love hiking and being in nature, seeing the creation with a different language and colors for each season.

I started with oil painting in 2009. Since 2016 I make art intuitive with acrylic on canvas.

I am an autodidact painter and participate in some courses for different inspirations.

Artist statement

I love to play with colors. My colors and hands take me on a joyous and unfamiliar journey through inner and outer landscapes. I am constantly surprised by what comes on the canvas as different movements.

The painting often draws attention to the inner wealth of man. I intend to inspire you to open up and pay attention to your inner landscape for reflection and movement.

My inspiration is the beauty in the surroundings and my passion for the interaction between body, soul, and spirit.
