In my latest series of paintings I am exploring in-depth the mountains as subject matter. Western Norway, where I grew up, and Western North Carolina, which has been my home for many years, are both defined by a similar landscape. I am intrigued by the emotional response that our physical surroundings evoke, as well as the questions that a place arouses about belonging and identity.
The technique used to achieve the richly textural surfaces in my work is a combination of collage and acrylic paint.
