In 2013 I studied Illustration at the Arts University of Bournemouth. I graduated in 2016 with a First Class Honours BA and had my work displayed at the D&AD festival alongside some of my fellow students to represent our university.

Before and after uni I freelanced as a comic book artist and editorial artist. At this date in time I have been published in Norway, England and America. Currently I am working for GoCompare as a Creative and Motion Designer where I am part of the brand team and help create content for our social media. I also run a small Etsy store in my spare time, Nessie’s Necessities.

I’ve worked with local charities and have made promotional video content and website updates for some of them. The charity I am most involved with is Changes Bristol, a mental health charity that helps fund peer support groups.

I was born and raised in Norway. Growing up I loved reading comics and would borrow my dad’s old Asterix, Lucky Luke and Donald Duck comics (the latter was, and still is, very popular in Scandinavia). When I started buying my own comics one of my first favourites was “Nemi”. This was a series I became obsessed with and would buy every month, it is still sold today.
When I grew older and started honing my creative skills I began reaching out to publishers at conventions to network and get to know fellow creatives. One day we had editors from Egmont visit our school and this was how my childhood dream came true and my first comic was published in Nemi.
Shortly after I moved to England to attend University where I met my partner and fell in love with the country, but also different art mediums. While developing my own brand identity and exploring my creative interest I developed a love for design and animation. My partner and I currently live in Bristol and are enjoying our time together playing games and working on creative projects.

I’ve always had a soft spot for animals, especially cats.
In my spare time I love exploring different creative crafts.
When I have a quiet moment I enjoy crocheting and sewing.
Having a big sweet tooth I enjoy baking cakes and biscuits.
My partner and I will host board game nights from time to time. My current favourite is Splendor.
Needless to say I love reading graphic novels/manga, but also self-help and design books.
Growing up in Norway I would often spend the winters ice skating on the pond by our home. This is something I still enjoy today.
My favourite video games usually involve RPG elements, my favourite class to play, when applicable, is mage/spellcaster.
