PERSONAL STATEMENT

 

"Sometimes, watching my portraits, I feel like looking at the same picture over and over. Whether it be a child, an elderly person, different genders, people of various social or ethnic backgrounds. Recurring themes become your signature.

I love the bold directness of my portrait subjects. 

Travelling I find that nature never ceases to move me with its iridescence and 

ever-changing lure. Saying claims beauty to be our hearts´ intuitive intelligence.

At times it is as if earth and sky is my real skin and all within me - gratitude.

Street photography is perhaps my favorite. Capturing peoples ordinary lives, 

I choose scenes with a slight twist exposing specific social and cultural cues. 

I enjoy sharing these intimate and unique moments observed around the world,

"Moments gone forever, impossible to reproduce."

When I was eight my mother taught me to paint using gouache, egg tempera, and oil. 

I attended art history- and performing art classes throughout high school and college

and studied with seven different established Norwegian painters.
