I am a Norwegian artist and I have been living in Scotland since 2016.
Inspired by the enigma of nature and also by my cultural Scandinavian background, my paintings are an attempt to grasp the magic that is all aound us.The beauty in all living creatures, the light through a forest, the strength in a storm and the roaring sea, all give me a passion to express my feelings of profound connections to it all. The primitive forms and shapes I see in stones and rocks never fail to intrigue me. These conversations are shown in my work. It connects me to my heritage and underpins my sense of history and it also gives me a language to communicate with the world. This understanding has developed from prosesses through earlier work.
It is my hope that you will find something in my paintings that resonates with you.
My works are abstract and can have a level of animistic representation. They often contain layers on layers of stories until they settle down into a final resolution. As a result they are different from each other. I use acrylic and oil on canvas or board or paper and may also add crayons, charcoal and collages. I like contrasts between the spontanious and the deliberate. I search for the origin,the hidden, the strong, the kind, the subtle and the obvious, the playful and the immediate and above all- colours and light and energy.
