Solveig Swenson

Hello! My name is Solveig, and I am an artist inspired by visions, dreams, and the subconscious. My work is an alternative healing method that provides you with a painting to remind you of your strength, all that you have overcome, and your ability to tap into that power whenever you need to at any time. I use traditional painting techniques (acrylic, watercolor), drawings, and sometimes digital painting to help bring visions from other people’s awareness into art. I celebrate this form of art as bringing the shadows into light and this is liberating because it gives more power to be able to understand the subconscious. I allow the energy, experiences, and the subconscious of the subject flow through my hands and into a piece of art that depicts and celebrates their shadow work. My past clients have benefited from this technique because it allows them to get back in the driver’s seat of their subconscious (their dreams, desires, and fears) and how that manifests consciously. It’s an empowering avenue to self-mastery through art.What exactly does this look like?● Selling and doing original artwork commissions, ● Sitting down together and you allow me to create a commemorative piece in honor of the inner work you’ve done, ● Allowing me to facilitate an inner journey for you and paint a piece to commemorate that experience, or ● We go through the inner journey together, and you create artwork yourself from your experience.How did I come to do inner journeys specifically? The first time I facilitated inner journeying and art together as a modality came very organically and unexpectedly. I had decided to do artwork for people who have done shadow work. They can describe for me what their experience has been, and I can encapsulate it for them. They’ll have something to remember it with. It’s like a tattoo after something important happens in your life. After making this offer, someone came to me wanting an alternative form of therapy. They wanted the shadow work with the painting–to do them together, with me facilitating the shadow work. I did not feel ready to do it, but I did it anyway. I was being asked, and I had done all this work. There was still imposter syndrome, but I did it anyway and it was really successful. This showed me the power that I have to help someone see part of themselves differently and reframe difficult topics.
