Hello, Thanks for stopping to look at my work.
As an artist I see things I want to share with others. Through my paintings I can express my joy for life and living things whether in a still life, landscape or capturing the human spirit in a portrait. This is one way I like to celebrate the beauty around me. My wish is that you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
Painting is my joy. I believe you learn most by doing. I love painting nature but portraits may be my favorite subject.
I was born in Norway and moved, at a young age to Canada with my family. I studied at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angels on scholarship. Lived a few years in Mexico and exhibited with a group of eight local artists called the "Clique Ajijic"
I continue to hone my skills with classes, workshops, teaching and just painting.
