|I have been working as a journalist since 1971, but have been painting in my sparetime. Because of
bad health, I quit the journalism in 1999 to paint fulltime.
Im painting with acrylic on canvas. I enjoy strong colours - and symbols even in my landscape-
My idol in painting is Edvard Munch because he managed to paint with his nerves.
I have sold a lot of paintings, but never through galleries because I have not got an artistic
education - and in Norway its more important to have the right paper than a talent. Say no more.
