English PresentationWelcome to my web site.
I started as a hardangerfiddlemaker in 2005, when I started studying with Sigvald RÃ¸rlien at the Ole Bull Academy in Voss. I studied here for 3 years, and in 2008 I started my own business in BÃ¸ in Telemark.
I have also been playing the hardangerfiddle since the age of 11, and I have held concerts and fiddleclasses both in Norway and other countries in Europe and in the United States. I won the national competition in hardangerfiddle-playing, the "Landskappleik," both in 2011 and 2012.
When it comes to fiddlemaking, I make everything by hand, and carefully select the best materials available. I spend a lot of time on each instrument, and every fiddle has its own caracter and qualities, both in sound and in the way it looks.
Of course, I also do repair -jobs, sound -adjustments or any other work that your instrument might need!
