About me

I paint large paintings in oil, acrylics or ink, mainly abstract with clear contrasts. I tend to lean towards the cold color spectrum and keep returning to the ocean and the mountains. Either as a background or as the main character.

I enjoy the exploration of rust, structure, the worn and the unpolished. The industrial areas. The metal and the pieces left behind.
It’s interesting to enterpret something hard and with sharp edges, and try to make it into something soft and relatable. My art represents a reality that is neither polished or fixed. It’s more of an in-between. An expression of freedom.

Acrylic, oil and ink.


Structures of walls, bricks, concrete, rust, industry. The sky before the rain. Norwegian mountains. Misty roads. Frost. The ocean.
