I am an art director, painter, photographer and feature journalist.
Former Student of Westerdals School of Communications in Oslo.
"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.
Traveling 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.
Thirty years experience branding/logo design and illustration for a multitude of companies ranging from offshore industry, medical companies to publishing media.
Art director and photojournalist with 30 years of experience in public and private sectors; offshore, pharmaceutical industry, universities, newspaper & magazines. Serving and consulting clients on how to communicate corporate identity visually through branding, producing a wide range of products; websites, book covers, magazine-layout and logos.
