After five years in Italy, it was time to turn our noses back home. I had already sold some of my first violins in Norway, and tried to the best of my ability to gain a foothold in the Norwegian music scene. I found a nice workshop room in Therese Street, where I still live. Already after two years in Oslo, I decided to focus exclusively on new construction of string instruments. I was so lucky to be able to build instruments for both Arve Tellefsen and Truls Mørk after a short time in the capital, which gave me a “flying start”.
For over 20 years I have been building instruments in my workshop in Oslo. Look through the pictures to get a sense of what it’s like here. Or better yet, stop by for an espresso.
I feel lucky to be allowed to work on my great passion every single day. That musicians value my instruments adds an extra dimension to it all.
