Having been commissioned by the county governor to paint a picture for Queen Sonja of Norway and exhibiting her works in New York City, Endresen explains that her success so far feels slightly surreal. “When I was standing there at a collective exhibition that I was personally invited to in New York, with lots of people and Champagne, I couldn’t believe I was there,” she says, adding that the royal painting was a highlight in her life. Her watercolour paintings feature rough lines and streaks – some even describe her art as quite masculine. Endresen explains that it is important for her to express speed and excitement in her work, and to bring a certain mood to it all.
