"I was born here, in the North. Mountains, forests, shorelines, the different seasons, the wind, the light... Throughout my childhood and youth I was surrounded by these elements. I was shaped by the energy of this landscape. I have seen many landscapes since then. Glaciers, deserts, other mountains, warmer winds and softer light. They are all part of my inner landscape and I need them. But it is here, in the north, that I find myself, feel at home. Through different artistic approaches, I have shared glimpses of these quiet, intense, untouched, wild and tranquil landscapes."
