Summary

Hi!

I was born in Oslo, Norway, in 1987, and was from an early age infatuated with video-games. When I played Final Fantasy VII in 1997, I fell in love with the art, and decided I was going to make game art for a living. Drawing my way through youth, I never really grew out of that dream, but through books, movies and music, I realized it was the fantasy part, not necessarily the game part, that excited me. From there my tastes have expanded to myth and history as well, and I am discovering new things that interest me every day!

I love doing both illustration and concept art, and i am open to any project involving the creation of places or beings ever so slightly out of the ordinary. As the cool kids say; "Hit me up!"
