Video summary: Me creating an imprint from an old house in Sunndal, Norway, by rubbing a piece of paper. (Then the real work begins: finding figures and creatures, and bringing them out with the pencil.)


Welcome to my little shop, NordicHiddenTales!

I'm an artist and illustrator living in Norway. In the shop I offer some of my art and illustrations as digital prints, and as designs on T-shirts and hoodies.

Nordic nature and folklore inspires my work, and the expression in my art lies between realism and surrealism, the narrative and the enigmatic.

Some of the hoodie and t-shirt designs are details from drawings in the "Avtrykk" (imprints) series.

About the “Avtrykk” drawings:
"In the old days, sheltered by timber buildings, people from the north were listening to the howling winter storms bringing the messages of gods and kings, warriors, crooks and heroes, and so fables, fairy tales and stories were created by the fire.
I start my drawings by taking imprints of the timber in old buildings. Using my imagination, I can see figures and creatures telling fragments of stories, and I’m bringing those stories out with my pencil."

Wall art: Printing and shipping are handled by me.
T-shirts and hoodies: Printing and shipping are handled by Printful.

Thank you for visiting!
