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.
