Artist Statement

I am an abstract painter. I was born and live in Norway, but for the time being I am in London where I will finish my MA in Fine Art 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. I like to construct pictures little by little. For a while I have been engaged with landscape, not the one I see,
but the one I saw and felt, my inner landscape. It is exciting and sometimes difficult.
I paint because I cannot live without it, it is the only way for me to comfort myself and the only way I can see understand and grow. It is my language. (April 2019).
