Medium: Photography, Painting Digital Art
Texas based Norwegian artist Marit Nordvik is originally a graphic designer, and worked as such for many years in Norway. Ten years ago, she moved to Singapore and it was difficult to continue with her Norwegian customers because of the time difference. However, she earned a bachelor of art there, as well as doing jewelry design. In 2012 she moved to Houston, and production in Thailand became difficult. A year later she started to try out her husband’s Nikon 300D, and found this both amusing and challenging. She took Photo classes, to learn how the gear worked, but still, there have been a lot of experiments before she found her own style. Now she is taking whatever she knows as a graphic designer, in to a whole new level through the camera lens….sometimes with a little bit of help by Photoshop. This is her first exhibition, by the way.
In addition, as the curious person she is, she also began to paint acrylic and watercolor three years ago, sometimes combining a mix of medias, but that is for another show……
