About

As a maker I am strongly influenced by my surroundings, and based in the small town of Ålesund, Norway, there is a lot of nature all around. My work wouldnt have been the same if I had lived anywhere else.

I also draw inspiration from the current affairs and go through periods where it is impossible to watch a documentary without translating its meaning into the shape and form of jewellery and small sculptures. My work is everchanging and although some of my pieces are made in series, no two are the same.
