Norway • Born in: 1968

Painters

Norwegian artists

I come from Norway but left at the age of 18 and travelled the world for many years before settling in Luxembourg. I hold a bachelor of Science with honours and a diploma in Geography and Third world studies. 

I feel like the combination of travelling around the world and my social science studies compliment each ohther and meeting a variety of people from all walks of life has made me aware of the cultural, religious and economical differences people face in their daily lives. 

Some very fortunate and and some much less so. I am a self taught artist though I spent some time at Ecole d´Art Contemporaire in Luxembourg where they challenged me to let go of the plan, to let the art happen by itself. This was very difficult for me in the beginning but I have learned to love it. 

I love to try new things and learn as I go along by observing art and other artists around me. My art is a reflection of my journey and life experiences. I use a lot of colours and lively images to express myself through my art. Very often I have an idea of what I want to achieve and somewhere along the way it takes a life of its own and it becomes something else. 

I never give up until I am happy with the final result. I love having a big white canvas in front of me and to be able to turn it into whatever I want. I paint because I can't help myself. It is my passion in life. I hope you like my art, a little piece of me.
