Mimi Kvinge

Painter & Illustrator

Greatly influenced by her time spent in the outdoors—Mimi’s work reflects a connection between artist and nature. In her illustrations you will find bright colors, creative depictions, and photo-like work. Mimi uses paint, pen and paper to engage with the viewer’s imagination and tell a story.

Below gives us a look into her creative process—

In Mimi’s Words:

“Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated with the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it it. As a result, my art features animals and landscape through a dreamlike filter. I love to use unusual bright colors and striking textures, and pair them with photo realistic renderings of creatures and landscapes.

“When I am in the mountains skiing, or hiking, or sleeping under the stars, I feel the best version of myself. This sense of overwhelming respect and humbling beauty that I feel when I am out in nature, is what I strive to inspire in my audience. It is my hope that my illustrations and paintings can spark a sensation within the viewer similar to memories from when they were very small and the world still felt magical. To examine the ordinary and make it extraordinary.”
