Large private companies and banks as well as public government institutions, like the township of Garðabær have bought my works.

I was chosen to be the Artist of Garðabær in 1997.

I was featured in a three-page article in the September 2002 issue of
Nýtt Líf (New Life).

I was featured in a four-page article in the NR. 168 5.tbl 30 árg. 2003 issue of
Hús og Híbýli (House and Home).

In 2000 my painting, Summer Day in the Country, was selected as one of five paintings to represent Iceland in the largest international painting competition in the world, My Country in the Year 2000, sponsored by Winsor and Newton. It traveled for a year as a group exhibit shown in London, Stockholm, and New York.
My painting is on this page of their web site.


I am a member of:
FÍM, The Society of Icelandic Visual Artist
SÍM, The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists
