    My watercolor paintings are a combination of floating pigments and strict, more solid elements. The light atmosphere this creates exposes my mindset of the changing light in the landscape of the Lofoten Islands in Norway, where I was born and grew up.

    In wintertime there is almost no daylight, But the light that is left creates a mysterious mood with an orange, red color.
    Quite opposite from during the short and hectic summer when the sun never sets, and the small villages are living day and night. The light and colors are overwhelming. My paintings are based on these natural contrasts.
