Mi biografía I live and work in Bergen, Norway. Growing up in a spectacular landscape with tall mountains raising from the fjord I early got a close relationship to nature. I feel like a combination of a hunter and a farmer. I hunt for my visions in all I see, in the light reflected in water, in a withered plant, in the wrinkles of a human face etc. I collect it all and bring my treasures back to my studio where I reorganize the materials, seeing it freshly and exceed my limits to get new experiences. I started my career as a printmaker, and working digitally with photo, building layer upon layer, feels very natural to me. I like to see my work used in different settings, from art exhibitions to commissioned works. My largest commission = for an oil rig measuring 20 meters. My last commission was a series of 6 large photo based works measuring 150x150cm. I also enjoy working with books. There is a link to my CV at my homepage.
