Location: Norway

I am 55 years of age, educated as a graphic designer with a BA in Communication & Media Management.
Worked in several companies (ad-agencies and newspapers) for 17 years as a designer, before I started my own company MANOdesign. I ran this company for 5 years, doing graphic design and teaching design in high-schools.

In 2007 I moved to Singapore where I finished my BA on a Singapore-campus, and graduated in Adelaide in 2010, at University of South Australia.

In 2012 I moved to Houston, where I have taken several classes in Photography and Acrylic paint.
So, at the moment, I am working with Photo-Art, Watercolor and Acrylic paint.

I have not tried to sell very much of my pieces of art.
However, recently I sold one (actually a triplet, combining photo-art on metal and acrylic on canvas) to the court-house in Kristiansand, Norway.
In addition, I have sold a few to private collectors........
I have participated twice before in this contest, both of the times with a certificate of excellence as a result.
First time with acrylics on canvas, and last year with watercolors.
This year I try with a photo series, called "Faces in the strangest places"...good luck to myself;-))
