A bit more about me..

I am a full-time artist / designer.
A bit about my artistic background:
I have an education in art and graphic design and have 15 years' experience as a graphic designer and illustrator. I am a stickler for details and tend to use a strong color palette. My favored mediums are acrylic paints, lino-cut prints, and digital illustration.

Aside from my work, here are a few tidbits about me:
- I'm a rather quiet type. I prefer one on one meetings over big parties.
- I travel quite a bit between Norway and Canada. Schiphol airport, where I often have long layovers, holds no secrets for me!
- I have a massive sweet tooth that I'm trying to reign in a bit!
- My husband and I live with two Maine Coon sister cats that we adore to bits; Frida and Fiona.
- When I was a little girl I wanted to own a shop selling all sorts of paper goods, erasers, and fancy pencils. This is how my dream is coming to realization.
- One of my favorite activities is going for long hikes in the mountains around Bergen, where I live.
- As I write this, Steven Wilson's "Drive Home" is playing on iTunes.

I hope you will enjoy my work!
I'm always happy to make new acquaintances, so don't hesitate to get in touch!
