What inspires your creativity as an artist?

PT: Life and people. I use those two subjects to bring out my style. I think my style is what makes my art, not really what I paint.

    • Koffert er et skikkelig sommer minne, det og at det alltid var fint vær!Jeg husker onkel Olav som hadde butikk i Kong Osctesgaar, han kom ofte til gÃ¥rds i Helldalen. Og han hadde med seg en slik liten brun koffert. Oppi den hadde han ikke epler men snop til oss, og det var stor stas.
