"all the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind"
~Eckhart Tolle~



Draw and paint the subject the way you want it to be, not as it is.
Gerald Brommer


"Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it."


"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."
Edgar Degas

"We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light." -- Mary Dunbar

"Faith in oneself is the best and safest course"

oil and canvas by ingvild nilsen

"Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art"



Johan Daniel Galtung karaktiserer henne slik:

"Et naturtalent av de store og en utrolig formidler av den fysiske og usynlige verden.
Hun skaper stemninger vi andre opplever i drømme"

Siden 1996 har hun vært elev og fått evaluert sine arbeider hos maler og billedhugger
Tore Bjørn Skjølsvik som omtaler Ingvild Nilsens arbeider slik:

"Ingvild Nilsen er ikke naturalist i den forstand at hun maler mennesker som
strikker og syr. Hun maler følelser som hun konkret ikke kan svare for, men som
blir tydligere senere. Bildene vil jeg kalle Figurativt surrealistiske, figurgrupper som
komponeres i forhold til hverandre mot lyset. Når Ingvild er fri og slipper det underbevisste
frem litt frekt og direkte, lykkes hun best."

Ingvild Nilsen and Tore Bjørn Skjølsvik in Italy 07

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice
Do all things with love.


"All we are saying is - Give peace a chance!"

"I shut my eyes in order to see."

Jimi Hendrix
