My name is Maritha Ilen Holmsen. I am born and raised just outside of Oslo, Norway. 

My passion for creativity, creation and visual expressions  I most likely got from my family. I may even have inherited it. Growing up with creative and talented souls on both my mom`s and my dad`s side of the family I got a lot of input. And they where all uplifting and supportive  in every aspect.

I pick up inspiration from many different places. But I mostly get my inspiration from nature. I also try to colorize feelings.

I love to paint, and everything about it. The inside of my head is  total chaos sometimes , and painting is a great way of expressing the chaos, giving it a physical form. I like it when art makes you feel something. And that is what I hope my pictures will make you do, feel.
