My name is Kim Goksøyr Strande.
In an attempt to find a hobby to spend time on, I started painting in the summer of 2015. I hadn’t done a single painting since kindergarten, but was instantly hooked.
This website was brought to life to collect, document and share my journey.
Growing up in Ålesund, Western Norway, the coastal nature has always fascinated me. I want to depict that nature, and convey the feeling of raw power when connected to it.
Placid is described as “serenely free of interruption or disturbance”, which is exactly how I feel when I pick up my pens and brushes. A place to get totally engrossed.
So do feel free to have a look around.
Hope you enjoy!
