Two of my paintings to be Exhibited in London


Two of my water colour paintings got through the second judging round of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 206th Exhibition and will be exhibited at The Mall Galleries in London in April.

''Showing a diversity of styles and techniques, from traditional uses of the medium to the more experimental and innovative paintings. Works on display are produced by members of the RI and other artists whose pictures have been selected to hang alongside these by the RI Council, including many young painters using water-soluble media in often new and exciting ways. Works by the two newest members, Ann Kilvington RI and Kate Morgan RI will also be on display.''

New paintings exhibited at Moss Kunst Ramme


New work has been delivered to Moss Kunst Ramme, a gallery in my home town, Moss, in Norway. 

The gallery in which they are exhibited is a charming little gallery in the older part of the town located near cozy cafés and a magical waterfall.

Featured in Metropolitan Home Malaysia


A couple of months ago I was contacted by journalist and writer for Metropolitan Home Malaysia, Naquiah Malik. He wanted to pitch my work to the editorial team and today I received an email saying I was featured in the recent issue.


I am very exited and feel very humbled from the attention given to my work and story.

A varm thank you to Naquiah and Metropolitan Home Malaysia!

50 drawing exercises 


-Proud contributor of the new must have educational drawing book -

Just before Christmas I received two copies of this beautifully designed and well written book '' 50 Drawing Exercises''. The book is  a result of the talented Yanyun Chen and Martin Constable bringing together many great artists to share one or two drawing exercises in various categories such as line, mass and composition.  The book also gives a well covered introduction to the bare basics of drawing such as materials  and how to arrange your setup.


This book is a great learning tool and can give a helping hand to both students and teachers alike. I am very happy and proud to be a part of this informative and solid educational piece of literature.
