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 was instantly hooked.
This website was brought to life to collect, document and share my journey.
Growing up in Ålesund, the Norwegian coastal nature has always fascinated me. It’s raw features give a powerful sense of connection, which I want to depict through my paintings.
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!
