My name is Kenia Diaz-Skjerdingstad. I am a self-taught visual artist based in Oslo. Growing up in Veracruz, I always had paper, pencils, markers and paints. Drawing has always been my outlet. I came across to the mandala world 5 years ago as part of a healing therapy and I have not stopped drawing them since then.
I moved to Norway in 2017 as I married Anders, a norwegian journalist. Mandalas have been an important part of me while transitioning and adapting into a new country and culture. This is my peace of mind, the place where scandinavian winters are not so rough.❅
In 2018 two of my pieces were part of an exhibition in a little art gallery called Blank Space here in Oslo. It was a calling for all the mexican artists who live around Europe to gather around in one place.
I am also a ski enthusiast, cat lover and vegan. I live in Oslo with my husband and our two mexican cats.
What I hope for my art? To reach others so we can all reflect on our here and now. And to show the perfection of patterns, and how connected we all are ∞
