About Rika Maja Duevel

The inspiration for my paintings comes from my daily experience. I have come to find that my thoughts and mind bleed onto my canvas. I allow myself to embrace or let go of each experience by sharing a piece of it with others. My wish, is that the observer might be able to pull their own experience from each painting.
I was born in Stavanger, Norway on December 5, 1983. Growing up (born and raised in Norway) and attending an International School, has kept my eyes open to the world around me. Surrounded by the icy fjords and mountains reminded me that there were always new adventures to be had just over the next mountain or path. All you have to do is have the guts to keep moving.
I am a global nomad and this triggers the seed of my work. My travels around the world took me to Massachusetts, where I received my Bachelors in studio art from the liberals arts school Wheaton College. Next I continued on to Orlando, where I continued to paint, test my limits, and techniques of painting. Then I moved on to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I completed on a Masters in art education at Lesley University. Teaching led me to Rabat, Morocco and I now reside in Amsterdam, Netherlands where I teach art to students and, of course, continue to paint.

Paint is my favorite medium, but it is not the only medium that I dabble in.
I am also available to do commission work. At times I will create something for someone simply by the colors they choose and then I let my mind and brush get take over
the canvas.
