I was born in Ålesund in Norway in 1963. As a teenager I started to write poetry, but the start of my journey into the world of painting was first realised in September 2020. Earlier the same year I moved from the city to an island, and that was the beginning of a different life for me. I was so inspired of the nature on my daily walks, the hard wheather with meter high waves, the great mountains and the beautiful colours all around.

It gave me so much energy I had to express myself in some other way than writing poetries. That was the start of my journey into the world of painting. First I tried to paint figurative, then abstract, pouring, mixed media, and Dutch Pour. It is so exciting to see how the painting turns out in the end, and I am completely trapped in my own world.
