Painter, live and work in Iceland. I have made some paintings -- and one book.. take a look and give me a comment please, all comments helpful and most welcome!

Background Information

Basically I am a working-class fish-factory boy who grew up amidst the lava rocks in my hometown: the childhood setting that somehow surfaces in my paintings. As does Iceland in general, my Iceland within. The paintings are like they are. They feel like "home" to me and I can't help it. Straightforward artworks, not a groundbreaker's approach, no razzle-dazzle of skills, but a lot of soul.

Birth Place
Hafnarfjörđur,  Iceland

Artist's salary from the Ministry of Education in Iceland 1989, 1994, 1999.
Several scholarships from Hafnarfjordur

Works in museums:
National Gallery of Iceland.
The Hafnarfjörđur Institute of Culture and Fine Arts.
Reykjavík Art Museum.
Kunstforeningen, Trondheim, Norway.
