Exhibitions and projects.

Since 1997 I have held, or taken part in, a lot of different exhibitions and projects. From the first exhibition at Gallericaféen in Haugesund in -97 to larger exhibitions at Tegnerforbundet in Oslo or Haugesund Billedgalleri

I have also worked as an art-consultant for Byfjord Skole in Stavanger, had a project for “Den kulturelle skolesekken” and been involved with the project “Kunst i skolen” in Stavanger.

The problem with media-teachers...

Working as a media- and communication-teacher for a long time makes ordinary artists or illustrators into “Jack’s of all trades”. …maybe also “…masters of none”? I don’t know. But I do know quite a bit about photography, lighting, composition, graphic design, journalism, communication-strategies, typography art- and design history, E-marketing, web-design, wordpress, photoshop, illustrator, indesign, flash, lightroom etc. etc. The list goes on and on I’m afraid. 

But the one thing that is most important is to create my own art using painting and drawing.
