Originally from Norway, I have been in the UK for over 11 years, the last 8 in London. I have a BA in fine art (UCA Farnham), and an MA in digital art (UAL Camberwell). For the last 3 yearr I have been working in film and as a freelance illustrator, signwriter and graphic designer, before which I spent 5 years as an in-house designer, illustrator & signwriter in the food service & retail industry.

My work is predominantly about the beautiful and the disgusting; finding places where they overlap, creating one from the other & surprising people with interesting twists. I'm an obsessive drawer, I love organic natural shapes & patterns and intricate, delicate details
