One moment in time

Randi Kristin Strand

I was born and raised in a small village in Valdres, Norway, with a few hundred souls. Growing up in such a small place made sure I longed out, and was 17 years old I moved to Oslo where I was educated as a graphic designer and started the a designcompany as I ran for 23 years. I sold the agency in 2012 and now has a studio at Vøyenenga in Bærum and works full time as an artist.
