Jana Osterhus

"I already had my own style as a child. As a nine-year-old I started an art education, which I completed at the age of sixteen. I studied the image-building of the Old Masters and developed my technique, form and content. Overlay, time, reinterpretation and refractions of the apparent shape my work."
