Artist Statement

I am an abstract painter. I was born and live in Norway but have the last years stayed in UK where I have taken my education in art and finished my MA in fine Art in London January 2020.
My interests are colour and geometry, but also architecture and sculpture interest me. I often paint feelings and compare my paintings to composing music. For a while I have been engaged with landscape, not the one I see, but the one I saw and felt, my inner landscape. I paint because I cannot live without it, it is the only way for me to comfort myself and the only way I can understand and grow. It is my language.
