    I’m from Iceland, a land of extremes, long and dark winters and short summers where the sun never sets. Here in this vast land lives a small nation with strong tradition of believing in folklore and adventures.

    Swans have always fascinated me. Their light and beauty has earned them a symbolic and mythical status throughout the world. They are a link between heaven and earth; a bridge between life and death, between the material and the spiritual.

    Icelandic nature and the mystic of folklore inspire my work, but the main objective of my paintings is capturing the play of light.
