About / Contact

I'm a 
comic artist, and drawer from Leirvik in Sogn og Fjordane, that lives and work in Bergen, Norway.

I got my formal education at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (Today the University of Bergen, faculty of art, music and design),  where I got a Bachelor and Master degree in design from 2006 and 2008. I have also worked three years, from 2012–2015, at the same institution as a research fellow making an artistic research on screen-based comics.

As many comic artist I also love making fanzines. With my colleagues I run an organisation called Bergen Zines. Bergen Zines makes all from workshops to Zine-Evenings to maybe the most important ... ... Bergen Art Book Fair.

I'm very facinated by the digital comic format. I have made one artistic research on the subject called Frozen Moments in Motion, and I have made a few digital comics. My first digital title was Sound of the Aurora (2014) which is originally an performance comic. My second digital title is Close, closer, Closest which is my debut on a reading tablet (iPad), both are short stories that belongs to a project where I portray my grandfather that was a war sailor.

I love making comic and zine workshops and I have worked with all ages, from kindergarden to the elderly home. I have also been guest teacher at the Academy of Art and Design and Høyskolen i Sør-Øst Norge (Notodden) lecturing in visual narratives.
