I’ve always loved to draw and create; to visually express the beauty I experience in the natural world around me.
Art is my way of Being. Through art I create my Self, defining who I am by what I do and how I express.
It is a divine way of living and experiencing life. When you experience beauty, you experience your soul. When you create beauty, you express your soul.
As I live my art, I no longer look outside of myself to see where I fit into the world. Instead, I create my life from the inside out.
I live on the West Coast of Canada where I am surrounded by the beauty of the forests and ocean. Being in nature connects me with my spirit and I’m inspired to express what I see and experience.
My ancestral home of Norway inspires me with beauty-infused memories of colour and light… from long, midnight sunsets to breath-taking northern landscapes… troll magic and faerie tales…
My art comes from everything that I am… my essence… and it is from this place that my world continues to evolve and expand. It is a continuous journey. In my studio I love to guide and mentor others to discover their own essence through the journey of art.
When we live our lives as art, the world becomes a match to who we are.
Each day we get to decide ~ What will my day be like? How will I live?… What will I create today? Our lives become art-ful.
As an artist I intuitively observe how lines, colours and shapes define the essence and personality of things. My paintings are interpretations and expressions of what I see and experience.
Whether creating the figurative representation of a person or the abstraction of a flower, I explore the interactions between the shapes and colours on canvas; each colour and shape becoming its own character and contributing to the work as a whole.
My paintings reflect the beauty of nature with bold vibrancy and an innate sense of design.
