Who am I?

I am a native Norwegian from a family of farmers. As the oldest child, I was expected to become a farmer like my ancestors. But when I bought my first plastic pocket camera at the age of twelve, I told my parents I would become a photographer. They thought I was crazy. They didn’t know any artists and were sure I would starve to death like so many artists before me. Just look what happened to Vincent van Gogh! My parents tried to change my mind, but I knew that everything except being an artist would make me miserable. 

What is my passion?

Stories. Stories. Stories.

My head is full of stories. Creating artworks is like playing games with characters, colors, plots, and pictures, and I just happen to have a talent for it.

What am I?

I’m a storyteller, photographer, scriptwriter, designer, poet, story collector, producer, writer, director, artist, community manager, facilitator, and entrepreneur.

What techniques do I use?

I use many different techniques. As a photographer, I use my Canon camera and Adobe Photoshop. As a writer and scriptwriter, I use Celtex, JotterPad, and my MacBook. As a designer, I use my sewing machine, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. As a facilitator, I use Prezi, Zoom, photos, and videos. As an entrepreneur, I use my management skills. As a filmmaker, I use all of the above and some more.
