About the Artist
The lively, cheerful paintings of Norwegian artist Vibeke Lillefjære are known for their unique color combinations, uninhibited brushstrokes and ability to convey new experiences to the viewer. A self-taught artist, Lillefjære considers art to be a positive force in her life, so it makes sense that her paintings are consistently expressive of optimistic energy and have the ability to touch people and inspire them. The spontaneous brushstrokes, bold pigments and magical color combinations of these works would brighten any space or mood.
Lillefjære’s painting process is very private and personal — she calls her paintings reflections of her soul, and works only in isolation. According to the artist, this helps preserve her style of individual expression, and certainly the results demonstrate her characteristic and appealing style. Using acrylic pigments and linen or cotton canvases, she paints with a sense of freedom and impulsiveness, producing contemporary art that contains an unusual sensitivity and a sense of the audacious. Instead of looking to other artists for inspiration, Lillefjære’s ingenuity stems only from her own creative process.
