Lives and works in Son, Norway


I am a visual artist, born in 1967

Educated at the National Academy of Art in Oslo 1991-95

I basically work as a painter, and my projects are thematically strong connected to nature and the concern of the living, living materials and the art.


The compost pile is the metaphor I prefer to use, about the living material converted and transformed, decomposed to something new and vital-a circulatory eternal cycle.
