I live on the West coast of Norway on a peninsula close to mountains and fjords. The nature inspires me, the elements and it's ever changing colours with its intrusiveness and persistence, and its changeability reminding me of the ever passing of time.
My investigative mind together with my curious approach gives a multitude of starting points for my paintings. The process of refining, recreating and making the painting independent of its starting point is the conscious and decisive part of the creative process in contrast to the meditative start.
Soft pastels open up to a more intuitive method and by using my hands as tools it facilitates a more direct and immediate approach that suits me well. I build the colours layer by layer and mix them on the paper, soft pastels open for both opacity and transparency witch I love.
