An Introduction: Why Norse Mythology?
I am an artist, a storyteller and a myth maker. While I am captivated by cultures and myths from around the world, it is my Scandinavian heritage with a particular focus on the tales told during the time of the Vikings that most inspires my work.
Each of my pieces begins with a story. I read the tale, then research and cross reference it in an effort to discover its meaning and core message. I then allow it to breath and take shape through my own aesthetic style, imagining myself living as an artist during the Viking Age. By interpreting these ancient tales through my sculptures, I seek to share their continued relevance with a modern audience and give life anew to this rich, unique and infinitely fascinating culture.
