Seven years have passed since Skogseide walked out of her marketing office and into the shoes of a full-time painter and artist. Looking back on how her life was suddenly spent more in front of an easel than a computer, her career change makes perfect sense. “I grew up in a family full of creative minds. My uncle was an artist, my dad was a musician and my mum paints, just like me. So it makes sense, even though I never considered studying for a degree in arts. I looked for a degree where I could use my creative mind, and that is how I ended up doing marketing,” Skogseide explains.
