How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I always liked to draw, but it wasn’t until around 2 years ago that I became really interested and more serious about doing art.

My main focus is nature, so most of my illustrations are based on this. I usually combine them with geometrical structures to give them a minimalistic look.

Being born in Norway, beautiful nature always surrounded me, and it’s safe to say it’s the main source of inspiration. I also find inspiration in the work of artists I admire.


Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
I would like being able to support myself by working as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, having the opportunity to work on projects I find interesting.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
There are so many incredibly talented artists out there. It’s impossible to pick only one.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Being able to live my life on my terms and finding ways to learn and grow every day.


Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I never give this so much thought as life rarely turns out exactly as you imagine, but hopefully I live in a peaceful environment, being able to do the things I love.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Perhaps my favorite author Haruki Murakami.

How is one way you make money with your art?
I’m currently selling a few art prints and original illustrations in my online shop.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I would have to say Japan. I have always been fascinated by both their culture and nature.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
Sakura Pigma Micron, as I mainly use their pens for my illustrations.

Any advice for young artists?
Find something that inspires you and use it to create your own style. Always believe in yourself and your creativity.
