The Norwegian artist is very much inspired by the sea and, with a stroke of luck, every studio she has ever had has been located by the sea. She has changed her style of work to move away from her signature pebbles, though she suggests that she is painting the same motifs, albeit in a completely different way. “What I feel like I’ve done is that I’ve taken the watercolour technique into acrylics in order to keep the transparent look. I’ve thinned out the colours and used layers upon layers – which is exactly what I used to do with the pebbles. I put the layers on very gradually, to achieve the right depth in the works,” she explains.
