From 2003 to 2008, she studied visual art at the Art Academy in Oslo, where she began her exploration of contemporary art making. She lives and works as an artist in Norway.
Her art presents itself in forms of paper cutting, drawing, painting and installation. Lines and geometric forms are often the basic elements she uses to construct her paper cutting and drawing, in which she explores different topics such as space, depth and issues concerning identity.
