Artist from Norway, born in Kongsvinger in1983. Grew up around Oslo. Currently living and working between Malmö, Sweden and Norway.
With background in ceramics I work with drawing, performance, installation and text. The time and the action of making plays an important role, where the dialogue between material, body and space, with their abilities and restrictions, work as a framework for my process driven practice. Through different mediums I play with visual and haptic contradictions.
Member of UKS (Young Artist' Society), NBK and BKFH (Norwegian Association of Visual Art, Hordaland), NK (Norwegian Association of Applied Art) and Tegnerforbundet (Norwegian Drawing Association),
