Some basics about me:
3 years of basic art education, and half a lifetime of individual study and learning within the fields of digital design, digital photo and digital illustration, as well as traditional illustration and classical painting.
Been employed in an advertising agency in the Bergen area (Norway), ran an independent freelance business in the Oslo area (capitol of Norway), and been a part time freelancer/hobbyist in the Arendal area (south coast of Norway).
I love art new and old, commercial and non commercial. There's an inborn curiosity within me that drives me to explore new areas of artistic expression. My fascination with contemporary artists like Drew Struzan (movieposters) and Cheeks (comix/manga), and old timers like Rubens and Rembrandt, gives me the inspiration to move on in my journey.
On my deviantart profile I attempt to show a variety of work/styles. And also how at times two or more diciplines can collaborate in the same work. Especially in the digital realm is this evident.
My love of subjects of a therapeutic and ideological nature, as well as my love of teaching, has given me much experience and input that I feel helps me in creating my art and illustrations. Having had the role of teaching and working within the above mentioned fields alongside my art activities, has helped to enrich my life and broaden my horizon and vision.
I hope the viewer will find something inspiring within these pages, and I will appreciate comments and critique. Thanks for your time and attention!
