An advantage to growing up, is the awareness of ones talent- and interest profile. To me it has become clear that painting and jazz are my two most important interests, and likely also talents. My formal basic education, however,  was within biochemistry, medicin, innovation and management. Those provided me with a fascinating proffetional career, but I know now that painting and jazz are my true passions in life. Luckily, I have all my life catered to these passions and aquired the necessary competence and technical skills to perform them. I am now entering a new phase in my life where I can devote more time and energy to painting and jazz. The purpose of this webpage is to present my paintings and also to share my thoughts on the painting process and what makes a painting to a good one. My hope is that by reading my art philosphy, and watching the paintings, you may increase your appreciation and enjoyment of art.

Welcome to my world of art

I grew up as the nephew of the famous Norwegian artist Kjell Aukrust and  the son of “bror min” Odd Aukrust, “The Statistician”. Both were prominent characters in Norwegian media and official life for decades. For me this combination provided an extraordinary upgrowing with everlasting effects on my personality. I am forever thankful.
