Statement

I was born and raised on a small island on the northwestern coast of Norway, and this has to a large extent influenced my artwork. As a seasoned traveler I have observed many different cultures. Much of my artistic work is an attempt at expressing the connection between the islands micro-history and the world's macro-history.
