in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1960. His drawing skills
were noticed early and enjoyed by family and friends. During his high-school
years he illustrated the school magazines and made drawings for other venues.

experiments in oil paintings resulted in solo exhibition

Since he started to paint he has participated in about 20 exhibitions and continues on the road of endless creation

well as his grasp of Reykjavik
city streets and surroundings.
