About me creative cv & reference

The possibility to unfold my full potential and make use of my creative gifts in life has always been essential to me. This is a summary of the path I have walked so far to allow for this to happen. And I keep walking! In addition to what you find in this resume, I have also created logos, business cards, greeting cards and many other things on various occasions. In fact the local Inn where I grew up still have my illustration, made when I was 15, on their items in the restaurant. Since 2014 I have grown increasingly passionate about writing and the possibility to create a living from this deep motivation in combination with my other creative skills.

Exhibition of paintings & drawings in "Gallery me" (2015)

Since early age I have been drawing and painting in my home studio. I have exhibited my work from time to time and plan to do more exhibitions in the future. I have studied Art & Fashion design in Trondheim Norway in the 90's.

writing & book illustration

I am a passionate writer (Novels, short stories & poems), currently working to finish my 3rd Novel (2021). Literature & Art go hand in hand in the sense that I often find inspiration for the one when occupied with the other and vice versa.

I have been engaged & active as text reviewer on a new Danish site: www.Tekstforum.dk (2016).

I occasionally also make illustrations for my own stories (you can find two collections of my own poems with illustrations on Saxo.com: "Det der aldrig bliver" & "Kølvand".

Lately I have also contributed as illustrator in Novels & poem collections made by other authors.

from Set-painting "the Hunch back of Notre dame" (2009)

At the age of thirteen (1986), I was "hired" to make my first poster. It was for "The three Musketeers", put up by the local theater where I grew up. This became a HUGE eyeopener for me. Until then, I had never realized that engaging in theater could offer so many exiting tasks for someone like me. It was the land of endless opportunities and the straight way to creative happiness - I mean, just have a look at the scales - this was the BIG canvas. Since then I have been working as scenographer, set painter, set designer and costume designer on many occasions both in amateur and professional relations.
