I was born and raised in the west of Norway and lives and works now in Holsen, a little village in Sunnfjord municipality, Norway. After my education, I have worked with textile printing, public art, teaching and I have had several solo exhibitions.
Today I work in my own textile studio as an extension to our residence and I work with processes that can be linked to storage, transmutation, collection and use of what lies in front of my feet or in any other way randomly come to me (and that I have to clear up). In work with one work come ideas of how I can use the leftovers in the next work, either as inspiration or specific clear up work. This is one of my many aspects of work processes. I alternate between textile art, design and craft. I like to analyze situations and think for the relationship between technique, material and the situation. I work with art full-time.

I have also worked with the theme of public art that has a sound absorbing effect. My ‹Wall Cushions› are examples of this.
