Trine Giaever received a BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. While working full time as an illustrator for The New York Daily News, she attained a Masters in Painting from the New York Academy of Art. The academy is a graduate school that teaches the ways of the old masters, studying the figure with traditional drawing, sculpture and painting methods. However, her paintings have mainly focused on the landscape over the past several years.
Trine has exhibited in several states including California, Florida, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey and New York. The Albright-Knox Museum has her work in their collection. She has also exhibited several times in Oslo, Norway, and in Rome, Italy. While living and working in New York City for 23 years, in addition to completing graduate school she attended a variety of classes at the Art Student's League, the National Academy of Design, the School of Visual Art, and Pratt Institute.
After moving to Piermont last year Trine has been interested in painting the people and places in beautiful Rockland County. She is currently a freelance illustrator, predominantly for scientific publications.
