Bio

Born in Stavanger, Norway, Rika Maja Duevel grew up surrounded by the icy fjords and mountains; they reminded her that there was always a new adventure to be had just over the next mountain or path. Now as an adult she carries this concept as she journeys forward. Her journey has now taken her to Amsterdam, the Netherlands and she was lucky enough to have an atelier in Treehouse, a creative space for artists in multiple disciplines located in the NDSM neighborhood of Amsterdam.

Rika Maja Duevel is a global nomad and this triggers the nucleus of her work. With each new adventure, she finds new inspiration. Her artwork manifests from her daily experiences, the idea of capturing the moment. She allows herself to embrace or let go of each experience by sharing a piece of it with others. Her wish is that the observer might be able to pull their own experience from each piece. She often uses vibrant colors and patterns to document this story. A sketchbook always at her reach, is my portable way of capturing each idea as they come. This process has taken her all over the world and with each destination she documents a different story, a different moment.
