About Liv Wassum
"Liv has always been inspired by the natural world around her.
Art, creativity, and expression are a part of her essence. It reflects how she sees and experiences the world.
She is also a spiritual mystic, and that soul quality is deeply embedded into her art.
However, Liv did not start to create meaningful, beautiful, and provocative art practice until she had established herself in a different career path.
She is self-employed as a therapist, workshop facilitator, event speaker, life coach and energy work facilitator.
Liv found that she enjoys helping people live their best life as much as she enjoys painting. She balances both.
Liv has been painting for over 30 years.
She is highly respected and admired for her creative works. Her paintings show the interconnectedness of all things, and more specifically the role that we as human beings have in relation to nature, spirituality, and life itself.
Her artistic expression is further driven by a creative impulse propelled by motion, a sense of presence, and energy - initially creating shapes that subsequently reveal figurative features and at times tell stories.
At the heart of Liv´s art is her innate soul desire to create various forms of mystical, mythical, and narrative espressions. The way she does this is by connecting to the essence of things / subject matter, as well as their timelessness and presence.
Her goal is to express herself freely, while drawing inspiration from the Great Masters, Vedic art, alchemy, shamanism, spirit, and nature.
Ultimately for Liv, art is a doorway or portal that transports us to the veil where layers of consciousness dissolve to reveal what would otherwise seem invisible and impossible to communicate. Through art she communicates what is seen and unseen."

Art opens doorways.
Obstacles and veil between the layers of consciousness dissolves.
Symbolism, the language of the soul, and archetypes are in their natural element.
Art reveals what is invisible and not possible to communicate.
