Visual artist, born in Norway 1962. Lives in Oslo. MA  from Bergen Academy of Art and Design (92). Language, signs and sensory experiences are central elements in my works. I have explored and dissected various forms of language signs, and have tried to investigate the relationship between our senses. My ideas has been realised through different media and techniques.: Artist’s books, photo, print, installation, landart and video. Have had many solo- and group exhibitions in Norway as well as abroad. Purchased by The National Museum, KODE Art Museum among others.
