I am Rikke Kjelgaard.
Nice to meet you.
I am an autodidact artist, jewelry maker, psychologist and public speaker living in Southern Sweden (born and raised in Denmark).
I am creative and innovative and I thoroughly enjoy playing with color, texture and a variety of techniques when making art.
My paintings are deeply inspired by my own internal universe, my current color preferences, music that I love, my huge curiosity and my basic need to simply play with paint, techniques and tools.
For me the process of creating itself is an opportunity to practice both mindfulness and self-care. I am often living my life in the fast lane with a truckload of professional and private projects to juggle. Creating is my recovery time and my place to slow down and show up to what is.
As a person I am committed, outgoing, brave, humorous and kind.
I laugh wholeheartedly.
I cry (somewhat) often.
And I love others into the depths of my soul.
Life is short. And so I do my best to live it to the fullest. And to always do more of what makes me happy.
Thank you for being here. May your own path be full of love, sunshine and of you doing what matters to you.
