Solveig Noll grew up in a home that frequently changed across the Unites States. This pushed her to seek meaning and spirit in the places she called home. Over the years, the West Coast morphed into "her place," and she began painting the wild, rocky cliffs of the Oregon Coast. The abstract style of Les Fauves along with neutral or pastel color palettes often inspired her artistic direction. Painting landscapes felt natural to her, and as her expressionism became both gestural and minimal, she began to capture the sense of places simply by creating feeling through color, symbolism, and texture. This new path became her manifesto, and a theme that is thoroughly present in her paintings. Solveig currently resides in Portland, Oregon where she explores the city and surrounding nature by bicycle.
