“Perhaps because of the landscape of my childhood I am drawn to creating a sense of space, color. Norway is a dramatic country especially the islands I come from which are above the Arctic circle. I love that open country, sharp mountains rising out of the sea, the quickly changing sky. Not unlike the home I have here, water, mountains and open skies.”
