I alternate between painting naturalistic and more abstract and get ideas from outdoor life. Themes are often fetched from mountains, seas and fjords. I am interested in arctic areas, glaciers, geology, structures in rocks and crystals and mysteriousness of nature. In acrylic paintings I often make use of sand, clay and sometimes organic materials.
I have attended ca 40 exhibitions mostly in Norway including Svalbard (Spitsbergen), but also in Iceland, Sweden, Finland, France and Italy.
These are solo and shared exhibitions (invited, juried competitions and other).
