I’m a fine art photographer living in the small town of Horten in Norway. When I was nine, I got my very first camera. Someone gave it to me on a family trip to England to visit my grandparents. The camera didn’t last long, and the cost of film was high, so it took some time before I could afford to pursue the art of photography.

The real passion for photography came to life when I was a teenager. A photo of a snow-covered apple in National Geographic Magazine piqued my interest in the world of photo art, but it took me years to go from a hobby photographer to a full time professional. However, photography was always important to me and gave me an extra income beside other jobs I had until I was laid off and had to make a decision about my career.

“Colorful Layers” photography, printed on Hahnemühle photo rag, 60cm x 40 cm


Through my camera I feel a connection with nature, a connection I hope to share with the viewer. If we don’t connect with nature, how are we going to preserve and take care of it? Most of my images have elements of nature in them, even when it comes to a colorful abstract or a shot where a piece of nature’s treasures has been brought home to play a role in a still life arrangement. Seashells, feathers, flowers and leaves are all beautiful models in my studio.

I create by experimenting with different techniques and styles, from soft and subtle colors to iridescent brights. Maybe it’s a weakness that I can’t stick to one cohesive style, but there is always something new to learn, and I want to evolve!

“Balance and Harmony” photography, printed on Hahnemühle photo rag, 60cm x 40 cm


My camera is always with me, and when I see something intriguing, I will capture it no matter what style it will fit into. That’s why my art is not always close-knit. I change my style now and then, going from pieces with digital enhancements to black and white photos, landscapes, seascapes, composites and so on. I do try to maintain order by keeping similar works connected in series.

“Sense of Summer” photography, printed on Hahnemühle photo rag, 60cm x 40 cm


If something catches my eye through its light, shadows, colors or textures, I will put my name on it and experiment. Everything starts with a photo, but I often add digital texture layers to amplify the mood I wish to convey. I believe moody images can be relaxing to contemplate as well as create an emotional connection with the viewer.

“Peaceful Winter” photography, printed on Hahnemühle photo rag, 60cm x 40 cm


My inspiration comes from the beautiful Norwegian landscapes as well as travels abroad and the artworks of other brilliant artists. I find inspiration in the way light sifts through branches of a tree and in the amazing details of a feather or a tiny flower. You know, the things we often take for granted and that we actually have to look for to appreciate.

  1. Style is often something which locks the painter into the same vision, the same technique, the same formula during years and years, sometimes during one’s whole lifetime. ~Pablo Picasso
