Watercolour & Acrylic/Mixed Media Artist
Ida Glad is a watercolor and acrylic/mixed media artist and coach for creatives.
She work part-time as an independent artist and teacher for Art Escape Studios, where she facilitates a range of courses and workshops about art and creativity.
She has a background in life-coaching and facilitates workshops that use art and expression as a pathway to personal growth and creative development. Besides teaching she is finishing her master degree in Social Psychology.
Ida paints in water-based medias, including but not limited to acrylics, watercolor, inks and oil pastels. She has been painting for the past 10 years and slowly developed a painting style that mixes abstracts and figurative elements in strong vibrant color schemes. She is inspired by the Japanese aesthetics worldview Wabi Sabi, which is described as: “the appreciation of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature.”
Nature in general is one one of her biggest sources of artistic inspiration, but she also like to explore emotional and/or psychological themes in her paintings.
She likes to experiment and explore new techniques and ways of painting all the time and think it’s important to keep playing and connect with that inner creativity and curiosity we were all born with.
