About the Artist
“I’m a dreamer and that is the essence of my art”, says Ivette Kjelsrud. “My goal as an artist is to remind us to see the beauty around us and to follow our dreams.”
Ivette’s inspiration comes mostly from nature. She is fascinated by light, movement and color which account for her choice of subjects and is influenced by her immediate surroundings, experiences and the places she’s lived.
Ivette’s interest lies in capturing the soul of things rather than the details, always playing the line between abstraction and realism. She paints predominantly with a palette knife in mixed media and loves to explore and experiment, leading her to discover new techniques and continuing to bring fresh and unique results.
“Ivette Kjelsrud creates stunning works with rich textures gained from a mix of watercolor and oil. This artist has an unparalleled eye for composition and her impressionistic interpretation of nature results in pieces that would brighten any home.” – Missoula Cultural Council
