The snow falls softly from a dove grey sky and floats to the ground with elegance and grace. So pure, like a pristine white blanket, on the frozen ground. The air is frozen, delicate and each hue of winter white is beautiful and unique. The snowflakes sparkle and dance, like tiny crystals on the velvet evening sky. There is a glory in the stillness of the night, something magical with the white snow and the stars that shine so bright.

The essence of this painting is rooted in the colours and landscapes from Scandinavia and the traditional beautiful design of Nordic art. The Norwegian landscape comes alive during the long summer days and light nights of the midnight sun, and then becomes majestically silent as the autumn colours fade into the white snowfalls of winter. This quality of light gives colours a brilliance that is rarely found in other regions. The difference between the cool, cold almost whitish blue winter landscape and the bright colours of summer is very inspiring to the artist, and the paintings are characterized by bold contrasts between colours, textures, shapes and light.

In the work it may be possible to trace the pure white light of a winter day or the vibrancy of a flower in a variety of unexpected ways. Departing from a single vision from nature the paintings try to show her inner mechanisms and vitality not represented by appearance, but by the emotions these visions create in the viewer.
